Overall Satisfaction with Concrete CMS (formerly Concrete5)
Amazing and really well thought out CMS. Works out of the box, easy to setup and is packed with features so you don't need loads of plugins. Great for editors and very good for developers to build off. The code base is excellent.
This has been design with the basic user in mind, the UX and UI is very well thought out and being able to edit content within the page without having to go to a backend is very valuable.
The team behind this CMS is constantly improving and updating it but not just fixing bugs, really user improvement. The community that supports it is vast and there is always someone on the forums to help you out.

Concrete is better than all this for its UX and code base. The feature set is rich and you don't need loads of third-party plugins. It never gets hacked and is updated by a core team or is accessible via email or Slack. Has a great community backing it up and with good support forums.

This CMS is well suited to anyone building and maintaining a website. It is easy to use and simple to setup. If you are a developer selling on this as part of a website package your clients will love it. Very little training is needed for editors to get updating sites. I have never had it hacked and [it] runs on most servers. It is easy to move between hosts and updates are simple.
