I love the idea of Drupal. It just works out of the box.
Really? That wasn't my experience at all. I tinkered with Drupal for about a week and not even the examples given on the Drupal web site worked without a lot of tinkering. Then I went to actually deploy it to a web server and had to tinker more. Asking on the Drupal forums for pointers on how to integrate Drupal with Apache failed to give me a straight answer. In the end I just gave up on Drupal. I have several Perl based frameworks that I work with and more in Java. Don't need another one.
