Drupal Vs Joomla : Some simple ideas  

Some opinion on Drupal Vs Joomla from the users on Joomla forum.

Use Mambo(Joomla) when:* don't know about the technical stuff or are not interested
* you need a easy install procedure just like a software system
* you are not interested in learning a lot of the tool you are using
* you don't plan to integrate any complex scripts into the program.
* you want a candy site and don't mind several other sites using the same template(s)
* you are not much interested in SEO
* you are not interested about server resources
* you're planning your first or few sites only
* you are not interested in a single login for all sites
* you don't need user memberships and groupings etc.


Use Drupal because:* Drupal offers a high quality platform
* Drupal offers a real multi-site-feature (only one installation for several sites)
* Drupal offers any kind of user groups permissions
* Drupal offers membership- and community sites, not just CMS etc
* Drupal offers a Powerful templating system
* Drupal needs a bit more of your time
* Drupal offers clear, high quality code and API
* Drupal offers unlimited flexibility

    I use both. Had to laugh at the templating comment though. Typically, folks throw the template trophy to Joomla!. Here's a website of 200 J! sites that show how differentiated they each look. http://JoomlaPlace.org.

    All the best!
