Actually, dotNetNuke doesn't share anything with phpNuke except the 
name. It was based on a MS Showcase Application (ISpyBuy Portal), and 
has been completely rebuilt twice since then. Version 7 is light years 
from its shaky roots.

It definitely has it's quirks and idiosyncrasies, and you need more 
horsepower than your standard virtual service to run it. But for a 
dotNet developer, you get a pretty good deal for "free" and something 
you can build on top without too many issues.

P.S. I also believe that servers don't need GUIs. :-)
