I have worked w/ Drupal in the past and I think it is one of the better
LAMP cms's. I have found that it takes a fair amount of configuration. 

I would love to see a good stock configuration of Drupal for the School
Server. It is not appropriate for the XO as Ben Schwartz points out.

There already is the Moodle cms on the XS but I am not familiar w/
Moodle and I don't know what kind of blogging functionality it has
