    What would be better for a content site, i.e. Downloads and stuff?

    There are 2 differnet things,
    wordpress is more like blog
    and joomla is a cms
    but wordpress is going to be a full cms, if you are think about seo, updates and future wordpress is the best option, and google love it...
    regards

    after playing around with both, wordpress wins for me. It is easier to use out of the box and more versatile.

    I´ve started with joomla and used it 6 months. Now I´ve tried wordpress 1 month ago, yes it´s very easy but I don´t know how to build a normal website with wordpress... For an blog it´s perfect...

    And for some reason, I´ve read that wordpress is perfect for seo. But my sniper site ranks extremly bad for an very easy keyword.

    wordpress is designed for blogs. Easy to use. several free plugins to download and use.
    Joomla is complicated in some way. but once you get used to it, it's win in manipulating web contents. what i like with joomla is the module positions. it also has several components, modules and plugins to use. a powerful CMS i must say.

    I'm a joomla guy myself, i only use wordpress for autoblogs... you can make real websites with joomla.... customize anything you want etc.

    Sometimes I open an autoblog i have in wordpress as a wrapper in joomla.... best of all worlds.

    Does anyone know any auto content plugins that would work well for autobloggin in joomla?

    I chose to install WordPress MU in my domains because it's downright usable with little tinkering upon installation. If you are just going to blog solo or with a very small team, WordPress (or WordPress MU) is much better.

    You'll only need to consider Joomla or Drupal if you have lots of different types of contents and expecting a large group to manage.
