My opinion...

Basically the only person that seems to want silverstripe is Christian.  I
think there are 3-4 people here that like Drupal in this group.

Add one to Christians Group,

I tried your demo and I also tried the Silverstripe demo.  The silverstripe 
interface is pretty intuitive I was changing permissions, adding users and 
groups in no time.  Excellent

The Drupal Demo, I figured adding groups, couldn't figure how to manage users 
or permissions and managed to post content

I did a comparison on Compare between Silverstripe and Drupal and while there 
were swings and roundabouts, the significant difference was that most of 
Drupals functionality seemed to come from addons or plugins and I couldn't see 
any easy way of installing said plugins..

On the strength of the above I would go with Silverstripe.

However in addition to that:

Christian has a long history with the project and that does give his opinion 
some gravitas especially given he will be responsible for the CMS in the end.

The kicker for me though is that at some point in any OSS project roles change 
or people get added to teams for this sort of admin.  The number of admins 
will expand quickly for all the various projects and the faster they are up to 
speed on any CMS, the better.  To me Silverstripe wins this hands down.

So I'm in the Silverstripe camp.
