We are in a process of deciding which open source CMS (such as Drupal, Wordpress, and Joomla) to employ in our website development. I am wondering if anyone would like to share their experience and insights about these systems. Thanks in advance.
Well, Typoscript isn't that bad. It isn't even a full language. It is really just a bridge between the CMS and your HTML/CSS template. It also handles many of the base configurations for Typo3 (like which DOCTYPE you want to use, etc) and extensions. You don't have to be a Typoscript expert to be functional.
Knowing PHP primarily helps you with extension development and customization. You can also include custom PHP scripts as pieces of content using Typoscript. It is pretty easy.
If you go Typo3, buy a book. Most of the web help is in German. Typo3 is much more popular in Europe than the US.
