    This is one of the most asked question in Internet history and still there are need to ask it and answer it again
    and again, ha...
    I've been active Joomla and WordPress user for over four years. About two years ago I drop it and completely devoted my self to WordPress. Now I am a WordPress developer and intend to stay with it for a long time.
    This does not mean that Joomla is not good or god forbid that is bad, it only means that WordPress is able to be adjusted to almost anyone's need really quickly and you can set it for almost every user with all kinds of
    experience levels, so they can manage it. And most of us who are Web designers or developers and who deal with clients it is most grateful choice to use it.

    There is only a few percents of "big" clients who need demanding web platforms for their Websites and presentations and they will hire big Web design studios or companies to set it all to their needs, and those
    studios or companies will create original scripts for them. But All other clients over 90% of internet websites and presentations need quick stable and simple to use platform. Only WordPress can fulfill it.

    I'm not say it that it is perfect but all other platforms are more complex or bug woundarable or less stable then WordPress. That is why almost 30% of Internet Websites are using WordPress platform. Simply as that.

    1. You can install it in just literally few minutes!

    2. You can update any part of it in a most simple and quickest way. (try updating or upgrading Joomla ?!)

    3. Installing new plugin or theme is really the simplest task, because you can just upload it and that's it.

    4. Admin area is probably the best part of it. So simple to use, that I can call it perfect.
    Adding a new entry (posts or pages) are quick.

    5. There is a lot of extensions both free and paid, propably the most amongst all other CMS ...

    6. For developers there is absolutely the best online manual on the Internet - WordPress Codex.

    There is also a few missing or not so good things about it, like user managment (same as joomla) ...I'm talking about WordPress core.

    Conclusion: There is no, not even close other CMS or any other kind of Web building, developing, designing ...platforms like WordPress. That's just the way it is.

    On the other hand, Joomla has almost everything that WordPress does, but it's a bit more complex, not so stable and there is always some bug complication. Updating or upgrading Joomla can be a real nightmare, Installing Joomla is more complex too. And after all Joomla is suppose to be used for a more massive and complex Web sites and presentations such as Portals, news ...it means you will have less clients and bigger competition, because such clients are news publishing companies, Big trademarks ...and they are always rather hire big studios and companies too...

    Joomla has much extensions to offer, maybe as much as WordPress, but it's not that easy to adjust them to clients needs as you can do with WordPress extensions...

    It's up to you, but my vote goes to - WORDPRESS!
