What about Drupal's cost of ownership? What about all the modules that never got ported to D7 by their maintainers, or were simply abandoned? What about the effort it takes to roll a custom theme? What about members of the community unsure about the "murky" direction of Drupal 8 moving to Symfony 2?

Look, I love Drupal and am a long-time Drupal developer and member of the community, but don't you think we suffer from many of the same pitfalls that you list in your article? Yeah, our software is free and open-source, but dealing with the issues I listed aren't free.
