Should I still pay attention to this?
I was a heavy joomla user for a while, But I made the switch to wordpress and Ill never look back.
Just like Aqua, I use to use Joomla for everything. However, wordpress is like 1000 times better. Faster. Easier.
Depending what you done. I need something simple to get the job done for my products so I use it for that. But my blogs or directories and stuff, I use WordPress. For micro niche adsense sites, use a site builder that build HTML files, or that's what I do.
I like drupal more than joomla, I guess it depends on what you need it for. Wordpress is really fast and easy, with all the plugins available it is really flexible as well.
I've been using Joomla, Drupal and WP for small to enterprise projects since early versions and while in the beginning there was actually a pretty thick line between a "blogging system" like WP and a full-featured "CMS" today there's really no reason to choose Joomla or Drupal over Wordpress.
Some might argue the former two might handle caching for high volume websites slightly better, but it's largely a myth these days. Truth is that WP has an unmatched number of plugins that allow you to do EVERYTHING that drupal, joomla or any other CMS system do. Just use WP and let the 2 other bloated kids alone.. ;-)
I'm with aquaclean... I've moved to wordpress and won't go back. It was the best decision both timewise and ease-of-use that I've ever made.
Joomla is too complicated for it's own good... like it's attempting to be "organized" too much in the backend. I love wordpress and it seems to be much faster and a lighter footprint.
