I will echo J├╝rgen's opinion about Typo3's UI being more complex than 
Lenya's. The department I am part of is offering Typo3 to the 
institution as their CMS. It works well, and has many more features than 
Lenya. However, it is more complex to use. There are tree operations 
that their admin must do in kind of a weird way. Operations that 
standard users can do in Lenya (move a page up or down for example). My 
group on the other hand has been able to deploy Lenya to about 60 
different schools with much less support. We provide the site admins 
with about 2 hours of training via phone, then we follow up with 4 hours 
of in person training for the teachers. That seems to be effective for us.

The use of XSLT was a big plus for us as well. We did not want to learn 
yet another proprietary templating language.

I've been running versions of 2.0 code since October in production. 
Right now I am running 2.0.1 (plus a couple of patches) and it is stable.
