Content Management System Choice

In the past 5 years I've worked on 3 major Content Management Systems.

Expression Engine:
Extremely difficult to manage, is one of the least supported. I was asked to manage a site built by Expression Engine, it took about 6 months to be comfortable, but what I found most difficult was finding support and help. I ended up paying for an Indian consultant to help me with the site.

It's a well supported system. I can search on the Internet for help. It's not my favourite and some parts of the CMS annoy me. The hardest part is working out where a module exists in the admin edit screen. With a few years of experience, this tasks gets easier over time.

My favourite CMS. It's cheap to maintain, easy to setup security and find help. Themes are well maintained and many plugins which are regularly maintained.
