So i spent about 45 minutes on the demo site... Anything about the site can
basically be configured through the GUI on the admin side and groups can run
autonomously. If I added and configured the notifications module you can
send anything from an email to text message to group members. I usually
spend months on a site to configure it perfectly for a client and develop a
custom theme. This site could have lots of improvements, but I think
getting all the functions listed below added and working in 45 minutes
illustrates that Drupal is quick and flexible. You could literally just
drop on a theme, do some configuration of the UI with a couple tricks, and
this project would have a wiki + cms + blog + group management /
organization system seamlessly integrated together.
THe site has a place to post pages that could be turned into a wiki with an
add on module called wikilinks.
The site has groups, polls per group, ratings on discussions that are
tracked, and differentiated admin / user roles.

P.S. The guy that complained that my argument in the past about Drupal is
like Microsoft is silly. Micorsoft sucks because they are closed source and
lost their minds when they released vista and office 2007. They do not
suck because they ARE usually easy to use and have a big community of
support. When your running a real company or business that depends on some
software, but isn't MAKING that software, you need the software to work and
will depend on the community that makes it to support it. I think a big
energetic passionate community is an asset.
