I've tried both Joomla and Drupal. I think both are powerful but I personally prefer Drupal. Reason is so far I can get all my things done using Drupal.
I'm a big fan of WordPress, which is more user-friendly than Joomla (the other CMS I've had experience with) but still completely customisable (through the use of custom themes and plugins).
CushyCMS is a new one that I am just testing - extremely easy to use, free in the basic version and quick in implementation (all server-based). Generates some unnecessary code, though.
When did we start naming products on WW, by the way? ;)
Personally I like to work with Wordpress as a CMS just because I know now it inside out and our friends at Google just love it.
Drupal & Joomla are both cool and I would say are more flexible but with a *much* steeper learning curve.
PS: I'm new here but surely there can't be a problem with naming open source software can there? It's what the web is all about after all :)

You can check out some of the open source cms systems here:
thanks guys. I think I will end up using Drupal for the best domain I have in case I want to use advance options/plug ins.
If you have more recommendations please do let me know.

June 9th I believe! ;)
dreamcatcher: thanks for the link. they posted a similar question in their forum.
I've happily, and successfully, used MODx on numerous occasions; it's easy to build for, easy to update and fairly feature-packed. Whilst it doesn't necessarily offer the brute-power of some of Drupal's features, I found this outweighed by the benefits I saw.
Nice piece of kit, all things considered.
I'm running my website in drupal since last two years. Drupal is the best content management system I ever found. I found drupal search engine friendly as it could be the worst experience with Joomla before using Drupal. So I recommend to webmasters use of drupal.
Joomla is worse CMS than Drupal....
MemHT Portal is a best one, if u want to make a download system website. its best thing i like it givs the detailed website staticticsa built in feature, no mod require and many other major features are pre-build, as compare to other CMS, we need to find the mods for them.
but Joomla & Wordpress both are perfect & 101% Tested CMS also by me personaly, we can use these 3 CMS under any kind of requirement.
Wordpress - it is easy to get the basics down plus with new versions installing themes and widgets are as easy as clicking a button.
Plus, some of the templates out there look like sites, not Wordpress.
I think Joomla only supports dynamic contents, but on the other hand drupal is 200% SE friendly, you can create html based contents, you can use PHP scrip, filtered html, static urls, easy to navigate, browser compatible themes, all latest tools ... so all kept in Drupal, not in joomla... I'm running my personal training website in Drupal... I'm using it since last 3 years.. and found it the bestttttttttttttt
