Drupal is not a CMS

Clearing up what Drupal is and is not:

"Drupal is supposed to be the best CMS ever! So why doesn't it come with a simple news or event system?"
We hear that line in one form or another from clients all the time. We also hear it from fellow collaborators within the Drupal community. It's a fair criticism, too. Shouldn't a content management system include some definition of, well, what content to manage? It should.

The disconnect is that Drupal is not a Content Management System (CMS), nor has it been one for some time. Drupal is a Content Management Framework (CMF), from which you can build a CMS tailored specifically for your needs.

It depends of the point of view. For me a CMS should allow collaboration over the same document/page as a page should not be exactly news or event. Wiki oriented systems are the best CMS systems for me.
