I've met the inventors of Adobe AEM too. Really smart, great guys.

I've been selling + marketing web content management for 12+ years, having worked at Interwoven, Ektron, and now Acquia. So I've got a good understanding of the market, and how Drupal compares to AEM, Sitecore, and others.

I'd suggest you read Innovator's Dilemma by Clay Christensen. It's the blueprint for what is happening to Adobe right now. The functionality gap between what the vast majority of customers actually need and the AEM price is unsustainable in the long term.

If you took a closer look at Drupal, and I encourage you to do so since its open source and freely available (why is there no AEM trial, by the way?), you'd be pretty amazed by how close the two products really are.
