What is great about Drupal is that when you create a content type, even
using CCK module and defining extra custom fields, everything is
automagically persisted in the database and may be retrieved as nodes. You
don't have to worry about that.

And, Drupal has a contributed module which is really practically part of
Drupal itself (no-one develops any serious sites without using it and CCK):
the Views module, which is a query generator so you don't have to use SQL to
list your nodes. There is a powerful graphical interface which allows you to
create your query on the fly and even shows you a preview of the list you
will be getting.

The views module (http://drupal.org/project/views) also allows you to create
as many displays of the view (Page/Block/RSS etc.) as you like.

That's why everyone is flocking to Drupal!
