    Honest question: who is still using Drupal these days and what made you stick with it? What do you see as its advantages over other full featured CMS' out there, or does it just come down to personal preference?

      There's a strong Drupal community in my country, but it seems to be run/populated by older devs. I went to one of their Drupal conferences for speeches on other topics but honestly felt more scared/intimidated than allured.

      I use it. WordPress just isn't up to the task for the stuff we need it for. Yeah, WP could be forced to do a lot of what we want (and I prefer working with WP personally), but it's just not the right tool for the job.

      I'm not a huge fan of Drupal 7. Its admin UI is a nightmare compared to WP and the markup it barfs out is even worse. Still, it's a powerful tool with a very strong developer community.

      I am, however, very excited about Drupal 8. Up until D8, there was a very strong anti-NIH (not invented here) sentiment among the core contributors and planners behind Drupal. All that is changed now. They're actively embracing other frameworks such as Symfony, Twig, and Backbone. Twig will make the average theme developer's life much better, but the real magic behind D8 will be its strong support for building Restful web services. My team is on the verge of launching a huge new redesign on D7, but we can't help but think ahead to D8 and rebuilding the whole thing as a modern javascript application.

    In addition to offering the robust core of the Drupal platform, Drupal 8 has many enhancements that make it a more user-friendly, responsive, flexible, and integrable platform. Here are just a few of the main Drupal 8 updates that should matter to digital professionals, marketers, and others who need to accelerate their digital strategies. Authoring is the hallmark of Drupal 8 -- fast, fun, and beautiful. Drupal 8 is architected to be fully responsive out-of-the-box. Flexible Content Delivery is another key tenet of D8. Translation and localization are much easier with Drupal 8, as the platform was built to support any language from the authoring side, and the interface can be customized to dozens of languages.

    Having worked with D6/7 in the past, there is no way I'm touching this steaming pile of spaghetti.
