Joomla meets most needs...
Versatility is what Joomla brings to the table. Someone reviewed Joomla as pretty but not extensible. I disagree! Not only are there thousands of extensions already built, but it comes with several for you to use on install. If none of these work for your purpose, you can write your own components (programs that run within Joomla), or Modules (display areas that can be placed in a variety of locations on the site), or plug-ins; also called Mambots as a vestige of the old Mambo roots Joomla has. The new 1.5 version uses the term plug-ins. (Plugins can change the way that Joomla treats certain data or makes it easier for you to add in data (images, movies, sounds, etc)).
