After heard just good things about Mambo, im using it on a new project and let me tell you that it is very friendly and easy to use on the process of adapting your design to the system. As i cant show any progress on my work, I made a search thru their community forum and found these site , a movie related one that will give you an idea of what can you expect from it. Hope this helps.

the website really looks great! I might need to look more into this mambo script. If it is already translated into Russian I might use it. To be honest I don't want to do extra work translating the website (both xoops and post nuke are currently translated and have a Russian support websites.

In addition, Mambo community is growing, and now there are a slew of add-ons, plug-ins, components and modules. From forums (PHPBB, Invision Board, Simple Machines) all the way through chat sytems (X7 Chat, FlashChat), and more, Mambo is now a serious contender in the CMS domain.
I've been using it for over a year now and won't use any other CMS.

Typo3 is a VERY, VERY complex system. It does have power that is incredible, BUT it comes at a price. Typo3 (which I had evaulated for a brief time) has a learning curve that is far higher than usual. I'd use FrameMaker to create a site before I use Typo3.
Also, you have to have very solid programming skills (or at least a decent level of programming knowledge) to fully take advantage of its capabilities. Also, installation of Typo3 is not all that straightforward. Add to that (and please check this for yourself, because my memory is a bit foggy here), you had better make sure your web host meets the backend requirements of this software.
I've been to various sites where people sang its praises, but were a little less than forthcoming about the complexity part.
It all depends upon what you want/need to accomplish versus the amount of time you have in which to do it. Also, do you really need to have that kind of power? Based upon my experience, for 99% of most projects, the answer is "no."
All I can say is, Mambo does what it does well, is VERY stable, is not a resource hog, and (what I would figure is important from a design standpoint) relatively easy to theme.
Sure there are some things Mambo cannot do - but do you really need those things. That is a question only each individual can answer.

Hopefully, now we are in the process of creating our own extension having the help of a big (and getting bigger) community of Typo3 developers.

1. PHP context module - but it doesn't match because the code is executed in eval()
2. Run external scripts using template
3. Write new module
May be you guys know if writing modules is unified process with typo. I mean if there is framework for this. And what is disadvantage of using template to run external script.
Thank you in advanced,
(I hope one more typo3 fun)

You have perfectly summarized that the beauty of Typo3 is its evil - namely it is VERY sophisticated.
This CMS is basically for professional developers and programmers. If you're looking for assistance with this CMS, there are some Typo3 user groups out there. But, generally, this kind of help is hard to come by.
The reason for this, once again, is because the average webmaster cannot use this software within a reasonable amount of time (meaning that this monster has a STEEP learning curve). And what is not widely used will NOT have wide support.
So, my advice is to search for an actual Typo3 user/support group. Or, go to webhostingtalk.com and do a search for Typo3. At least that's a start.
Hope this helps.

One more question. There are about 100 users in intranet. Everyone shoud be able to create his own page(s). Something so-called "Home Place" for everyone. Only one thing comes to my mind is blog for each of them. May be there are other methods for this?
Thanks for help,

Also, besides the link Brat posted, i always stick around the Typo3 English Newsgroup. You can find it (and other newsgroups related to Typo3 like Design or Development ones) at news.netfielders.de , then subscribe to typo3.english .
