"From many sides I hear that Drupal sites and themes are ugly, which is partly true, but I took a closer look at Drupal.org themes and handpicked 25 best designed Drupal 6 themes, to prove that Drupal can be beautiful even using standard themes that you can find on drupal.org website."

There are a lot of pros and cons for the use of Drupal for your Content Management System. You will noticed that it is missing from the 15 Great Content Management Systems for Designers link, and I can easily say that I agree with that decision. Drupal isn't the CMS system for making a website easy for someone not familiar with HTML. In fact, some may find working with Drupal to be harder then working with HTML - even as an end user. But Drupal can also be very powerful. And it's vast assortment of modules allows Drupal users to build their site into a lightweight web application - something that some other Content Management Systems don't even attempt to do. If you doubt Drupal's power, I invite you to give the Views module a serious test drive. But Drupal could be a lot friendlier to use. And Drupal should be useful without installing any modules. I dare say this is not the case in Drupal 6. Luckily Drupal 7 has this as one of it's major goals.
