Just remember, you did ask...

"#2 - What is Plone? - FINAL
Plone is a powerful and flexible, enterprise-level content management solution that is easy to install, get started with, and use."

I take exception with this. It gives the impression that running a complete Plone system is "easy to use and get started with" for *everyone*. This is especially in light of the fact that #1 above it says "without requiring a high level of technical skill or tools other than a web browser".

#6 - geez, I'm not sure what to say about this.
Sure, it's easy to download and the installation goes fairly straight forward.

In fact, this is my main complaint with Plone in general. It might very well be easy to use for the end users - but to run the entire system requires a person who is well versed in Zope/python. I'm a computer administrator by profession - and *I* haven't been able to get a Plone site up and running yet. What does that say for the "average user"? Iow, the kb needed to run & maintain a Plone system is WAY under stated.

I have to be honest - I am close to giving up on Plone.
