Ill start myself:
Im using Drupal for my sites. I like the many Modules and applications it has to offer. I was told by a friend that website X uses this CMS to build their website and so I did some research on what Drupal is and basically liked what it had to offer. Before that I was doing plain Dreamweaver and HTML. So my first CMS experience was with Drupal.
I havent used other CMS's but I think from what I heard that Drupal has more modules than others.
I'm no coder/developer.
Drupal was first cms I heard of; had a look at it, could hardly make head or tail of the info.
I found Mambo, tried this and liked it; it became Joomla. I became disenchanted w Joomla, looked at Drupal again and found it easier to understand.
So, gave Drupal a go, and since moved sites to Drupal.
Complex to learn, but things like its Taxonomy and Views mean you can do a lot of content management, shifting and mixing existing content - whether keywords, titles, content categories, images ... - around in a whole lot of ways.
Custom menus, pages and so on possible: it takes time to start them, but they then work automatically as new content added. Various modules can help w this.
So if this kind of thing useful, maybe with community of users who can do different things - whether just post comments, or even administer site - Drupal seems good.
I came across Modx; info looked good. Quick try, got not far at all, and forum post to me said it was more for developers (then pre 1.0 release), so I left.
and docbird -- I looked at so many CM systems and all of them were for the designer/manager. Way way too much overhead/overkill.
So, still open for the KISS solution to site-owner's need for an editor.
