Default Big Medium CMS?

I am extremely frustrated by Textpattern, which I need to distort to do what I want (more of a magazine than a blog) especially as it has no coherent documentation and I do not intuitively understand most of its concepts so am constantly scratching my head over the simplest statements.

So I keep looking at these CMS things. The latest to catch my eye is Big Medium from Global Moxie. It uses Perl (not PHP), so has different server requirements, but I think I can meet them. It costs $129 (1st year; $59/yr thereafter) but for that one can run the software on as many domains as are housed on the same server. I have several domains on one server now, so if I can arrange the required permissions, that would be a great asset.

The developer claims Big Medium sites validate for both XHTML and CSS.

It may force me to do too much in a browser; not sure how much of that can be bypassed. I know you can upload HTML articles (rather than use the browser-based rich-text editor). But I gather that even images need to be uploaded by browser. How annoying would that be, I wonder?

Anyone know anything about it?
