Sam, why didn't you weigh in with such a convincing opinion when I (and others) was asking about CMSes a few months ago! ;) I think the OP mentioned Windows and IIS as the platform (not LAMP); even so, there are more solid options than just Drupal in that realm, including Joompla!, which, IMHO, is a better solution, and is at least much simpler to use out of the box. I don't have experience with an IIS-served CMS, so I won't offer specific recommendations. > The learning curve is not shallow.

But that said, it's probably the most robust solution for my needs, with its own great support and development community. I guess the only advice I can lend is to do a bit of research, compare products available for your platform , install a few of them, and see which works best for you. That's what I did. ~John  www.cmsmatrix.org and www.opensourcecms.com are great resources for CMS info.
