Drupal can and will pretty much do anything that a web application can
do given it's in the right hands of people, this is in terms of
functionality, ANYTHING!.If one of the core developers takes on a
project that they're bound to finish regardless or any circumstance
then yes Drupal can be developed into any type of application you want,
period.</div></blockquote><div><br>Ok. so you Sami just proved the point of the original author of this thread. This is the arrogant 'it can do anything attitude' along with the caveat 'especially true if you are core.'
<br>Well the companies that adopted this and then were hurt likely heard the first sentence and didn't quite get the second sentence. They then found out about it when the got stuck and had to pay some core developers really high rates per hour to get them unstuck. Of course core guys can build what ever they want. The swim in the code all day long and have done so for years. This does not mean it is the right choice for a startup.
