My 2 cents again, four years later:

I'm still with mojoPortal.  From a functional point of view, my only
complaint with mojoPortal is that Joe keeps pushing out updates faster
than I seem to get around to installing them.  :)  But seriously,
there's pretty good support for mojoPortal, and it's under actively

There is also Graffiti CMS.  I've noticed a lot of guys switching to
that lately.  Played with it for a bit, and I liked it.

Not a big fan of DNN these days.

I like the code in Cuyahoga.  Clean and modular.
