Sorry to get in this discussion late but...
DNN is drupal???
And what issues did you have with it that you have such a bad taste?
Was it because the learning curve annoyed any/everyone who had to work with/on the sites? No necessarilly the CMS just misconfiguration/mis-designed sites?
Or were the sites over ambitious because "there are modules written that let you do that"  so of course the sites weren't fully tested until they had kitchen sinks that leaked.
I am curious as many are again discussing whether Drupal is the CMS to use.
I can't wait to read someone post that has actiual experience...good and bad.

With that said, DNN isn't great, but there are few choices for .NET and when you live by MS you die by MS.  My previous experience is with LAMP.

On my list of things to do before I die is to make an opensource CMS in .NET that can use MySQL, MS SQL, and XML as data sources.  I'd model it after WP and use JSON and EXT and use standard .NET for the Logic and Data access layer (no NHibernate for me).  I would only have to resist writing the majority of the code in TSQL.

I had to support DNN at work for almost 2 years... We logged more 
tickets and more downtime with that site than we did an other platform.

Out over 200 sites, 80% J2EE, 10% RoR, 5% PHP, the rest Misc, we had 
more outages and problems with that site.

I will never run DNN at another site.  I assume it was bad developers, 
or problems with the server or something other than the platform, as 
that seems to be the only real Open Source Project on Windows, but 
still.  I have nightmares.

I would go Unix(FreeBSD or OpenSolaris) or Linux.
