I know that Typo3 can handle multiple domains with shared or site-specific content, but Typo3 is far to complex when managing just simple sites ... Can Wordpress MU really deal deal different or shared content on each specific domain request? I'll give it a try and make an installation...
Are there any other suggestions?
I implemented it a couple of months ago and am really pleased with how it is working.
ModX is really nice and well worth a look. Very different. I would say that WP and Drupal are more similar to each other than either is to ModX in workflow and you may like one a lot more than the others.
All of these packages and all of the software that run them are free. Download XAMPP or WAMP or whatever and set up a server on your machine. Install all three and see how you like them.
question for dbdev
Is it possible, without spending any money, to set up a testbed version of dotnetnuke? I assume that I would need to run IIS or PWS(?). But what about the database? Can I do like *AMP applications and have a whole testbed server running on my laptop for free?
Just download and install Microsoft Visual Web Developer Express (includes a web server), SQL Server 2005 Express Edition and the DotNetNuke starter package/kit.

You can do a little digging on G for a tutorial on the setup details... however it took me less than 10 minutes to setup everything... I am familiar with these tools though..
Of course, shared hosting is slightly cheaper on a LAMP setup, but I think usually on the order of a couple dollars a month.
Of course, I'm a fan of the LAMP platform and I know from past discussions that you're not though in both our cases I believe it's habit, not "ideology" and I do like to see people have choices.
