  • I see no reasons to use Drupal for people who knows at least basics of PHP and MySQL. Drupal good CMS just for 'primary' use. It shoulde be adjusted only in admin interface, no more. No programming with Drupal! It is painfull procedure.
    I like some article: erickennedy.org/Drupal-7-Reasons-to-Switch
    It describes everything about Drupal very well.
