CMS confusion

I am about to build a site with the following:

Monthly newsletter to subscibed users (and the admin features like defining the content and other configuration)

News section

Surveys and Quizzes

I am OK with any technology infra but prefer opensource solutions. I read about CMS tools but am confused which one to use. For the above listed features, what are some of the proven Web-CMS tools (that implement all the modern standards like css, rss etc)? Or if I have to buy a commercial one, what are some of the low-priced options?

Well, may be a naive question, but that is what it is.

I suggest you visit and post this on their forums.

I personally like Drupal but haven't done anywhere near enough with it to make any worthwhile comments.

+1 Drupal but I've run about 10-15 sites with it now so I'm a bit biased.

But yes, check out and poke around with some of them to see what you think.  You should even be able to play with the modules/layouts a bit, just remember that your changes are public and will be wiped regularly...

I've been looking for a IIS/ASP CMS solution for a long time...

I have found Umbraco( ) to be pretty good, though in all honesty I am only working on my first site with it.
