I am reviewing some Web Content Management Systems for a customer and I am really struggling to grasp what Alfresco is, and what it is not. The customer is looking for a cms for their website and intranet.

I would really appreciate it if you could answer some questions for me:

- How would you compare Alfresco to i.e. Fatwire Content Server?
- How does a developer create Content Types? For instance a Product or Article
- How do you create Page Templates? How do you as a developer decide what goes where on a given page
- How do you render content?
- How is the content stored in the database?
- Is it possible to mix portlets with the content displayed from the cms?

I have looked through some web casts and videos and I think I have misunderstood what Alfresco is, but if you can answer those questions for me it would really help.

Thanks in advance.
