| Drupal has won Best Overall Open Source CMS Award for the second year in a

| comes as no surprise. I only wish I knew about Drupal earlier so I wouldn't

| build great blogs on the software, but Drupal is able to take content
| management to the next level. Drupal gives you the ability to build a social
| network on top of your blog, add group functionality, profiles, blog
| networks, or build sophisticated social publishing sites.
