"FCM: Which ones would you recommend for SMBs?

"RS: I think Drupal is an excellent product. It's robust and the extensibility is excellent. While the upfront cost for building on Drupal is higher than it might be for something like Joomla!, the TCO for Drupal is quite attractive. There are also a number of very solid extensions, few of which are commercial or restricted, unlike some of the other systems out there right now.

"Of course, if you are looking to roll out quickly a marketing-oriented site, then Joomla! is hard to beat. The presentation layer is dead easy and the time to market very favorable. Of course, the right answer depends entirely on the requirements and the ability of the client to maintain the system. WordPress is a great solution, particularly from a search marketing perspective. Concrete5 is also interesting as it is highly usable and very client-friendly."
