Personally, I loathe Drupal's admin system as I find it very counter
intuitive.  Also, I've never seen a drupal install that doesn't look
like it started as community/participation site. That's not to say that
there aren't any, but I see Drupal's target market to be community type
sites. Otherwise things like Joomla! or CMSMadeSimple wouldn't exist!

It's probably just me though :)
