Q & A

Request to see an open source CMS demo

I have been reading up on open source Content Management Systems (Joomla and Drupal mainly) and I want to “groundtruth” their promises of being easy to use after proper installation. In other words, would anyone out there currently using an open source CMS like to give me a demo if I buy them coffee? :) I really want to see it used on the front-end before I dive in.
