I decide to create a personal site by way of a CMS.  Currently I am using Dreamweaver and updating everything manually.  Well I thought I get with the time and upgraded.  The following are things I am looking for.

1. Easy to use
2. Has downloadable themes
3. Cost doesn't matter but quality does
4. Customizable
5. Things I would like to add to site - flash photo Album, resume, and blog.
6. Modern looking (web 2.0).

I'm using PHP-Fusion for a fansite and it adheres to the first four items rather well (very easy to use with the admin panels, has a ton of themes to download, is free, and is relatively customizable).  I'm not sure about the last two as I really haven't tried adding anything else to it, and I'm not quite sure what you exactly mean by Web 2.0 (it doesn't use AJAX or anything, if that's what you mean).  I find Fusion to be a bit more forgiving than Mambo/Joomla.

I believe there's a site that will let you try different CMS' for free.  Something like opensourcecms.org or something.
Using 'global' is a sign of doing it wrong
