I set up Drupal 8 earlier this week to kick the tires and get a better understanding of how it differs from WordPress. For starters it provides granular user controls. I imagine this could be a killer feature for anyone setting up an elaborate subscription site where various levels of users are granted additional access.
As a WordPress user I’m a little jealous of how easy it is to create, edit and modify user roles. I could see myself wanting to allow certain users the ability to edit their own menus in WordPress. Drupal allows that function without additional modules.
Hmm. I’m going to have to keep digging and see what other surprises I find.
