    Wordpress is the easiest CMS ever! You can do anything you want with it in a simple way. If you will invest your time to learn some tool, learn Worpdress.

    I also vote drupal. I'm no coder and I've figured out how to do some pretty sweet sites with it. I used to be a joomla guy because it was "easy"... I would never go back.

    Drupal got #1 this year in Best overall open source CMS and best open source PHP CMS this year at packt publishing (google it).

    As compaired to wordpress... wordpress is easy to setup something very simple (a blog) and has a million plugins... but thats doesnt mean they are all quality.

    If you want a blog... go wordpress. If you want a cms that would have the ability to expand into something greater... go drupal.

    You should do you own research to questions like this. People who like joomla will post the software is great. People that do not like joomla will post all of the bad things.

    Find a good quality security website and read through the security bulletins for joomla. Search digital point for joomla hacked and see how many results come back. Then do a search for drupal hacked and wordpress hacked. Then repeat these searches on google, msn and yahoo.

    Its better to get an unbiased opinion, then to ask a group of people that will point you in the direction they want you to go.

    Another suggestion I have, when your reading through a forum like digital point, pay attention to how many times you see the words "hacked" and then the name of the website software. If your in a webmaster forum or a security forum and the threads look like someone copied and pasted the title - "my joomla site was hacked", something is wrong.

    It's depend on your work, time to spend, skills in computer languages etc.
    Joomla : have very beautiful templates, easy to use, good for complex websites.
    Drupal : easy to config (can add PHP easily), but themes are less beautiful, great on manage authorization (user level control - group control), good for complex websites.
    Wordpress : have very beautiful templates, easy to use, suitable for non-complex websites, uses a small time to completed website.

    Drupal is the best choice as it's more search engine friendly.

    Joomla drives me crazy - its incredibly limited structure means ALL your content has to be arranged in the structure:

    Section -> Category -> Article

    (OK, I know this CAN be hacked with third party plugins etc. etc. but I'm talking out-of-the-box)

    Also, the different ways to display that structure is very limited - the so-called "blog" format which lists everything in a section, or the "list" format which displays everything in that horrible, HORRIBLE list format (with the filter thing at the top!) - I mean who uses that..?

    I am not knocking Joomla, it's great for a simple site and has many, many third-party extensions, but if you want something flexible in terms of your site structure, look elsewhere. I know there are ways to get round all this, but it takes extra customisation and often some programming knowledge that most users do not have.

    WordPress is a phenomenal package and CAN be used as a CMS, even quite a sophisticated one, but remember it IS primarily a blogging platform, and some of the limitations of that can be seen. These, too, can be got round with some programming knowledge - WP has a pretty friendly programming framework and you can access all its many functions from PHP, but do you have the know-how for that...

    I am using Expression Engine for one site, though this is a commercial package, and am pretty happy (see http://www.odista.com - the site of my English-Serbian-English translation company), but this was also a custom job and could not have been done without programming knowledge.

    I want to look into Drupal for some other projects - I am hoping it is more flexible than these others. If you want to see a what Drupal can do see: http://www.mtv.co.uk/ - though there is probably plenty of custom stuff there and I have yet to actually try Drupal out...
