Maybe, maybe not.

But not having a CMS will become a maintenance-horror either. There is 
no site that only aggregates feeds, there's always some content left 
(i.e. you don't intend to generate "Download CentOS X"-Buttons by 
crafting weird CSS-voodoo around an rss feed, do you?) and you have to 
somehow organize the feeds you display.

So we need something that is good at news aggregation and that has at 
least a few cms features.

I don't vote for Drupal (and also not against it). But I strongly 
discourage the "just some static pages"-solution.
