I have been using Joomla for 9 months and will never develop without it again. Installation and module add in is usually extremely easy, there are templates galore. Design is fun again using Joomla!

Joomla is great, but why isn't Drupal on your list? It is a good alternative to other CMS systems if you're looking to accept many types of user-submitted content. Not to mention, it is a great all-around CMS robust in features.

Glad you added Joomla but you are still missing Drupal. Without getting into the wars on which of the two is better (I am glad they are both around) I think that Drupal should be listed as a highly robust CMS that is rapidly becoming a standard in large commercial as well as non-profit sites.

DotNetNuke is out there too. I suggested it once, never went anywhere. For a while it was being snubbed because it's ASP.NET (like Paint.NET?) but it's got a pretty good following. A number of sites use it. Seems a perfect web management system to be presented here.

Joomla is the best!

Amazing CMS! With Joomla! 1.5 coming out very soon, this is possibly the greatest CMS out there right now. I highly recommend it!

I recently discovered Joomla! For me, it is the greatest CMS and beyond comparison. It is the way to go. Try it and be convinced.

Please add Drupal to your list

I tested Joomla and I found too easy and too limited for corporate usages. For private and personal web site maybe is the best one but for complex CMS, please go to typo3.

Absolutely unbelievable! I am so happy to have stumbled upon this CMS. I didn't even know what a CMS was before reading about it. Tons of tutorials online. Many forums offering help for free. Templates are incredible. Customization is almost limitless. Custom modules and plug-ins offer easy addition of extremely well written and useful tools. Trust the reviews from those who leave their names. Can't imagine needing anything beyond the scope of this. Actually it makes more sense to use it when the site is very large with a lot of users contributing content. Anonymous users might have motive for suggesting other CMS.

Excellent software - excellent project (active community to help, develop additions, etc.)
I have been programming my own systems, but I will never develop without it again.
All my commercial websites run on Joomla now :-)

We've found Joomla inflexible and hard to maintain in an ongoing way compared to Drupal. I've also found it hard (nearly impossible) to get Joomla to produce fully compliant XHTML markup...
