Wordpress Vs Joomla Vs Drupal

WORDPRESS
It is just for blogging systems and few cms pages manage through WYSIWYG Editor without more complex form fields integration.

Wordpress Pros
* Simple to use - No need for modifications
* Excellent for blogging or sharing thoughts in a sequential manner
* Even the most elderly of users can get the hang of it quickly

Wordpress Cons

* Not developer friendly
* The community seems to like to complain
* Upgrades bring more bugs than fixes sometimes


# DRUPAL
It is for developers and can hand-code the content of your pages than use a WYSIWYG Editor, or if you enjoy tweaking the code that makes up the framework of a website, then Drupal is probably for you.

Drupal Pros

* Extremely developer friendly. If I loved code more I would almost always pick this system.
* Strong community to help discern the dozens (hundreds) of functions and tags available.
* Can be used to create some really awesome websites that can outperform a majority of other sites out there.

Drupal Cons

* Not very designer and user-friendly. It's hard for someone with little code knowledge to make the leaps required to do the very cool things that Drupal is becoming known for.
* Theming of Drupal has been a huge case of fail (until recently). Probably because it has been developers, not designers, that are making the themes.
* Getting a Drupal website published could cost you more time, and thus more money, than Wordpress or Joomla.


# JOOMLA
It is userfriendly for all type of people i.e designers, developers and admins. Where as it is not so powerful as compare to Drupal.

Joomla Pros

* Friendly for all types of users - Designers, Developers and Administrators
* Huge community is awesome for assisting with creation of websites
* Has been rapidly growing and improving itself for the past three years

Joomla Cons

* Still not user-friendly enough for everyone to understand
* Not quite as powerful as Drupal, and can be a bit confusing for some to jump into
* Recently rebuilt the entire system from ground-up, and so there are still many out there sticking to the old versions (1.0.x)

Joomla Vs Drupal

Comparison between Drupal and Joomla

Use Joomla if you want to get nice looking site up quickly and can deal with a slower system, rigid content categorization and limited design/configuration options.

Use Drupal if you want high performance, scalability, good content management and significant design flexibility. But, be prepared to spend a lot of time/money to get the site to look professional.

When caching is disabled Joomla can serve 19 pages per second, while Drupal can serve 13 pages per second. Hence, Joomla is 44% faster than Drupal.

However, when caching is enabled Joomla can serve 21 pages per second, while Drupal can serve 67 pages per second. Here, Drupal is 319% faster than Joomla.

In other words, Joomla's cache system improves performance by 12%, while Drupal's cache system improves performance by 508%.
