    COPIED FROM http://www.communicopia.com/blog/joomla-versus-drupal

    Joomla

    Thumbs up:

    Easy deployment
    More intuitive administration user interface
    Editing content is simple
    Lots of polished modules for things like calendars, polls, etc.
    Easy addition of modules
    Versioning is available
    Large community of developers (more than Drupal) for helping with setup and development
    Multi-lingual
    Thumbs down:

    1 installation of the software gives you 1 website
    Categories can only go two levels deep
    Limited roles and permission allowances
    Modules cost you money
    URLs are not search engine friendly (there is a purchaseable module)
    Out-of-the-box blogging functionality is mediocre


    Drupal

    Thumbs up:

    Easy deployment
    Editing tabs integrated into actual pages
    Editing content is simple as well
    Very flexible in its configuration
    Modules are plentiful, free, and suitable for non-profits
    Versioning is available
    Many high profile sites use Drupal (e.g.: MTV UK, BBC, the Onion, Nasa, Greenpeace UK, Kleercut )
    Multiple levels of categories allowed along with easily integrated tagging system
    Human readable URLs which are search engine friendly
    1 installation allows you to create and manage mulitiple websites (very handy when creating campaign sites)
    Highly configurable user permissions handling
    Thumbs down:

    Administration area is clunky, but it's getting better with each version
    Terminology in the administration can be cryptic
    Adding a visual theme to Drupal can be time consuming
    Support for the free modules can be frustrating

    Hi!!!!
    Cheers !!
    Glad to get a prompt response.
    I had gone through both the negatives and positives of Joomla and Drupal.
    You said that high-profile sites use Drupal.It means that i should start with drupal.
    Can you suggest me from where i should start? Joomla or Drupal ?

    Thumbs up for that post, Orlando. Good info there!

    foodin - If you're an experienced web developer, you can start with Drupal. If you're not familiar with PHP, SQL, or other advanced development concepts, you should probably start with Joomla, though you'll probably be switching to Drupal within a couple years.

    It was a quote from an unnamed source. Clarified post with oldest source on the net I could find.
