Is Alfresco easy to use to create websites?

I am researching CMSs and am very interested in Alfresco. However, I am disappointed in the lack of documentation on how to use it to create a website without a team of java programmers.

In looking at Drupal or Joombla, they play up the ease of website creation and adding widgets or webscripts to a page. For instance, I need to add events calendars to my intranet site. The other systems have simple drag and drop funcionality, Alfresco seems to require that I write a java calendar and somehow insert it in the page. I need to be able to have access to many prebuilt widgets and page templates, not build them myself.

Either I'm missing something, or is Alfresco really for file management and not website creation?

Also, and very important, a post at blog.contenthere.net/2008/05/alfresco-and-e2cm.html states that the cost of Alfresco can be up to $60k per year for a large enterprise installation. Is this true?
