Hi Benjamin, *,

You had dropped off the discussion for the past several days, so I wasn't sure if you were still 

I thought I made it pretty clear that to judge, I want a demo that
meets all the initial requirements.
And people were telling: I'll create such a site. Thus I laid back and
waited for the result.

So I'm strongly in favor of silverstripe...

However, I think you're the only one. :)

No surprise.

I've counted roughly 4-5 people who are in favor of Drupal, including Andrea Pescetti, who 
replied to
the thread at length on Oct 16. Please read Andrea's email because it includes very good points.

I read all the mails in this thread, but just because Drupal has a big
fanbase doesn't convice me to actually use it.

Silverstripe does not seem to offer the groupware functionality that Drupal can provide us

Saiy who?
I mean I selected silverstripe after thinking about the initial
requirements, and I found it to comply with all of them.

If I don't have time to install a complete Drupal demo site (because I have a demanding day job),
that is not a sufficient reason to run roughshod over the request by myself and other community
members to give it a fair review.

You (all drupal fanboys/supporters) so far communicated the same about drupal.
It can do anything if you just spend enough time configuring it properly.

So yes: I demand *other* that are familiar with drupal to do it.

Christian--you seem to have the time to install and test Silverstripe,

Yes, because installing it didn't take long. It basically was ready
right from the start.

but you refuse to install Drupal.

Yes. Because their demos didn't convince me. It only tells: "You need
to put a heck worth of work into customizing it/hunting for the
appropriate plugins to get there where silverstipe is more or less

And as also written a couple of times: As silverstipe fits my
needs/the needs I did lay out (and nobody else added points to), why
should I invest time in drupal?

And as you mentioned the extension site running drupal: That is
another point why I don't really want to consider it. A statement that
swirls around in my head from the folks as OSUOSL (where that site is
hosted) was that those sites are those that require most ressources.

Why not go ahead and test it side-by-side, yourself?

Because then you'll again state: But you didn't install module x/y
that would have solved all your problems, because then you'll state:
You should have had an expert install it, etc.
