Ways to pick a CMS!

Ways to pick a CMS!

When you browse the forum at opensourceCMS you might come across this type of question many times:

What should I use?
Please recommend me..?
What CMS?
CMS for ... site?
Need suggestion?
Choosing a CMS question?

At PACKT Publishing they are also getting a very similar kind of questions. Here is a quote from their site:

One of the most frequently asked questions received at Packt is 'What is the best open source Content Management System for me?' This isn't the easiest question to answer, however we asked Chanh Ong, a computer specialist and contributor at opensourceCMS.com for his views, and this is what he had to say...

Here is a recap of what I wrote in the article for PACKT Publishing:

This article started out by defining “what is a CMS?”  “What is the scope of this article?”  “How content definition could be differed in people mind?” “How do you decide which CMS is best for you?” 
I also looked at what criteria to use to define your requirements.  With your tentative set of requirements, this article suggests where to go to do some hands-on experiments to gain more understanding about different choices of CMS, and how to fine tune or expand your criteria.  I also shared a little of my experience when opensourceCMS went through the process of choosing a CMS.
