|Subject:||Choosing a template program through Fantastico|

I have a lot of clients that just want a 2- or 3-page online brochure,
and to be quite frank, I end up spending more time on these sites than
on the larger ones! More than I could possibly charge for, actually,
which becomes a problem. So, I'm thinking about encouraging those
clients to consider one of the free template programs that come free
with cPanel's Fantastico.
If you're not familiar with Fantastico, these template programs
include Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, Geeklog, Mambo Open Source, PHP-
Nuke, phpWCMS, phpWebSite, Post-Nuke, Siteframe, TYPO3, and Xoops.
I have never used a template program in my life, so I really have no
idea how good these programs are, or how easy to use they might be. So
here's my question:
If you were going to pre-install just one of these programs so that
the computer-illiterate client could set up their own online brochure
website through a content management system (no FTP, and as user-
friendly as possible), which one would you choose?
Based on screenshots alone, I'm thinking of Drupal. Does anyone have
any experience on this one? If so, is it a better choice than the
others for the purposes that I've described?
