CMS Comparison, expanded for Plone

Ashleigh Davis put together a nice table for comparing Drupal, Joomla, and WordPress.  It seems only fair that I take that format one step further and produce an equivalent listing for Plone.

Homepage plone.org
About Plone lets non-technical people create and maintain information for a public website or an intranet using only a web browser. Plone is easy to understand and use — allowing users to be productive in just half an hour — yet offers a wealth of community-developed add-ons and extensibility to keep meeting your needs for years to come.

Installation http://plone.org/documentation/manual/installing-plone http://plone.org/support/forums/setup
Ease of use Plone requires technical expertise for advanced customization; however, it is very full featured out-of-the-box. Content contributors, editors, and readers will find Plone easy to understand and use.
Features Blending the creativity and speed of open source with a technologically advanced Python back-end, Plone offers superior security without sacrificing power or extensibility.
Caching Plug-Ins ZEO server (also works and plays well with CacheFu and Squid)
Best Use Cases For web content management, portals, content integration, collaboration, social software, and enterprise content management, especially where security is a premium.
I'd appreciate comments on how to improve this summary, especially on caching plug-ins, an area where I am weak.

plone.app.caching is our current caching framework. It replaces and improves upon CacheFu.

plone.app.caching provides significant performance benefits when used standalone, and even more speed when used in conjunction with a caching server such as Squid or Varnish.
