It was generally a pain in the ass to setup. There is just too much in here that I will never use or even want to use but am required too. The user groups and extra modules needed for everything to work right are really just unnecessary.
Theres enough crap in here to call it its own CMS, but wait a minute Joomla is the CMS I want to use. I'm trying not to hand all of the joomla functionality over to some 3rd party extension with horrible documentation.
Constructive criticism to the max, LOL. Anyway, you're obviously missing the point. So farewell to your ventures onto finding the right content management whatever for you.
