New to Drupal

I just started a new contract which involved Drupal 5.1 which I never worked with. I spent the week going over a number of CMS in order to decide which one will allow me to deliver the contract in the shortest time. My decision ended up being drupal 5.x series. I considered the Community, Learning curve, Resources (people who knows it in our area), Extensibility, Cost, Maturity, development Speed and Scalability.
From what I understood, drupal was the one that was more focused on extensibility. The fact that it was Procedural and not Object Oriented is a concern but the other factors were favorable to that choice.
