After Reading a Blog post: http://www.palantir.net/blog/drupal-not-cms It made me curious about the current classification as CMS Vs Framework.
Please use Facts, where possible to justify your response.
A Content Management System (CMS)is a computer program that allows publishing, editing and modifying content as well as maintenance from a central interface. Such systems of content management provide procedures to manage workflow in a collaborative environment. These procedures can be manual steps or an automated cascade. CMSs have been available since the late 1990s. CMSs are often used to run websites containing blogs, news, and shopping. Many corporate and marketing websites use CMSs. CMSs typically aim to avoid the need for hand coding, but may support it for specific elements or entire pages. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Content_management_system
Web Application Framework:
A web application framework (WAF) is a software framework that is designed to support the development of dynamic websites, web applications, web services and web resources. The framework aims to alleviate the overhead associated with common activities performed in web development. For example, many frameworks provide libraries for database access, templating frameworks and session management, and they often promote code reuse.
If you would not consider Drupal 7 a Framework, do you think Drupal 8 would be?
