You should give Drupal 7 a try, though.
I think they have made some big improvements in terms of the UI and making it easier for newbs to get up and running, fast.
The problem I see with the Drupal community is that everything is FREE, as in "free beer". Which at first sounds great, as a user. But then you find that important modules developed for version 6 haven't been upgraded to version 7 ( no incentive for 3rd party developers to do so?) and already they are working on releasing Drupal 8 !
They need some kind of market place, like an App store for Drupal modules.
It has been discussed but so far with no results.
