It is a resource hog, a very bloated package which is not too easy to use,
but it delivers beautiful and rich Web sites that are easy to extend (in
terms of features, not content). Fluency with XHTML/HTML is needed though,
so it is not a CMS of this generation; maybe a previous generation.

Drupal which is also worth looking into. Expect WordPress to become a
dominant CMS player too.
