Well lorax, you've heard this from me too many times, but here it is again.
I basically think there are three levels of sites
- fairly standard functionality: for me, Wordpress is the simplest, easiest way to get a site like this rolling, whether a blog, brochure or other similar site.
- a site with a fairly custom layout, structured data, complex interactions between the pieces, but not doing anything radically new or unique like inventing Twitter or Pinterest. In that case, it's Drupal for me. Much more powerful and flexible than Wordpress, but also more complex and more work.
- a site that is truly innovative. You're offering something really new, probably a service of some sort rather than a pure content site. In that case, you pull out your programming tools and roll your own.
