It's simply a matter of fact that most open source CMS's are typically community oriented. That's not a bad thing. The CMS "market" is so fragmented with so many different (and often conflicting) needs there's no way any single product can meet the needs of all of them, or even a majority of them.
Because open source CMS's are designed and built by communities, they tend to focus on the needs of community oriented CMS's. That's a simple byproduct of the "scratch the itch" phenomenon. This makes them great for blogs, forums, various kinds of publishing, small businesses, etc..
The needs change quite a bit when you scale that out to a large company or organization like a university. Now issues of accountability, workflow, authentication against existing directories, integration with line of business applications, reporting, etc.. become far more important, and these are things community driven projects care nothing about.
Then why don't you just shut the hell up and move on to a different message? If you're going to comment, you should at least make the effort to know something about what you're talking about. If you're going to say someone is full of bullpoo, you should at least KNOW that it is.

Gee Chris, I see you're descending into the realms of Peter Kohlman of just crying "idiot" for everything he doesn't understand.
