I am currently using it for content aggregation of clients. We set up
the different pages that will be in the real site later on as
categories and tell the client to post the page content. Works quite
well so far, and it is a great way to ensure they write content and
not a web site. If you offer the full design with a CMS you are likely
to get content that is connected to the look and feel (use the links
on the right...)  The WYSIWYG editor in there is quite OK for the most
basic things, too.
