I'm old school myself. I'd like something that's really usable and completely accessible even if you have a rubbish browser as bad as googlebot.
There are bound to be other old school folk like myself on here. What do you all use? Or do you just build something sensible yourself? (I can program but it seems a hassle).

Then I tried drupal (a modular cms package) with ubercart (a drupal module) [be sure to dry drupal6 and ubercart 2]
both drupal and ubercart have great support - their creators will respond, the community will respond. The number of GOOD add on modules for drupal is amazing.
regarding duplicate content: drupal can avoid this completely when properly configured.
Bigstep - year 1
Yahoo Store - year 2
Miva Merchant w/ Storeman - year 3-4
Custom Solution (PHP/ MySQL with asp.net CMS) year 5 - present
We're still not finished developing but feel that what we have fits our business model better than anything out there. We have two programmers on staff that handle development. It probably could have been done cheaper by buying a package outright. However this allowed us to slowly and continuously grow our abilities as revenue grew. During this time we grew from 3 employees to 58.

I am not an oscom guru, nor a particular fan of any ecom software.
