“b2evolution - an alternative to wordpress”

OverallWe host a blogging platform with b2evolution and its been a very nice experience.
ProsI like that b2evolution can be self hosted in my server which ensures the privacy i need. Its blogging capability is advanced and easy to use. Installation is a breeze as it comes with a installation wizard so even the non-technical person can install it. Further, b2evolution supports a forums system and also a knowldge base feature.
ConsSo far, in using b2evolution, I have not found any problems but has been a breeze since I switched from wordpress

“Upgrade at Your Own Risk”

OverallI haven't solved any business problem with b2evolution because the blog I hoped to turn into a business remains offline since last year after yet another upgrade installation failure.
ProsThis simple script is easy to use and provides detailed analytics.
ConsRepeated installation upgrade failures and rude support members that demand I "pay up or shut up" if I want their help to fix the problem.

“Greatest CMS in the marketplace”

OverallIt has everything you need for a professional website, even if you are a non-developer (like me), and you have definitely a better idea about what a website really means as compared to using WP or other CMS.
ProsTheir data privacy and the fact that there are all features you need for a professional website. There is also great user community which is very helpful.
ConsThere are many skins but they all seem to be very similar.
