As I said, most organizations and multiuser projects don't know that when
they ask for "a blog" they're really asking for Drupal. And if they do, they
just say it's too hard to use. 

I hope that focusing on distros will help in working out UI and UE issues.

I actually have a bit of an issue with the distros, but I'll test D6 first
before making any comments. 

BTW, I still do a double take when I read "profile" on this list. I
immediately think of USER profile, not INSTALLATION profile. In terms of
User Experience, I think it can be a problem.
