Having taught Sharepoint, developed in Java and Ruby, and stood up both Drupal and Joomla sites more than once, I can tell you that comparing Drupal to Adobe CQ5 is flawed from the beginning.

If you are comparing drag and drop web-based development platforms where the company wants templates to build fast websites, you should be comparing joomla and drupal.

If you are comparing Apache stack platforms with robust workflow, security, digital asset management, content targeting, and mobile delivery ecosystems.... then you will have trouble finding something to compare to CQ (just look at Gartner and Forrestor's report to see they agree - Adobe is the Leader in both reports).

I spent almost 18 years trying to get a system that is as well balanced as Adobe CQ5 across an enterprise. $500k seems cheap to me when I think about the half-dozen developers it took to build and maintain the sites we stood up for dozens of customers across multiple years.
