kasper once did a comparison with a boing 747.
All in all it is the same over and over again... complex software takes

If you want the classical "two days and I gotta have my site up" thing 
going on, go for nuke or other CMS solutions in that league. It might be 
the better option.

If you want full flexibility and never want to hear yourself saying 
"this can't be done with my cms" go for TYPO3
