Drupal Wins | Lullabot: "Site Modules and Architecture: This PressFlow-based Drupal 6 site makes heavy use of CCK and Views. Other modules of note are Views Slideshow on the home page; Fivestar for ratings throughout the site; ImageCache, ImageField, and ImageField Extended for image handling and galleries, Poll module (part of Drupal core) on the home page, and Views Cloud for sidebar tag clouds throughout.
