The real reason why we love Joomla!
Joomla! is not (just) a framework for building ad-hoc web applications. Joomla! is a successful attempt to allow everyone, from Joe Average to Jack Sitebuilder to Acme Corp- to differentiate, build a website easily and succeed. Joomla! is an enabler of success. And that requires being in touch with your user base and iterating.
