Plone has the easiest setup story of all the CMSes. You don't even
need to have a database  and a webserver for $deity's sake. Some how
installing and configuring a database, and a webserver is easier than
running an installer !

I think the key quote from the TFA is "Since
I had some experience with drupal, I suggested that we go with drupal,
since I had some experience with its working. I worked for a couple of
hours to set up a basic site on my local machine"

Yeah? really? what about downloading a windows installer or a mac
installer  for plone and doing a click-click-click as KG suggested
and be done with it in minutes?

The biggest joke of all has to be the fact that all the features that
I see on their site, including events works out of the box on plone
without installing a single external plugin. And plone's event
features have lot more features than the half-assed calender i see on
that site.

PHP+MySQL is the BASIC of this age.
