Comment Drupal rocks :) (Score 3, Informative) 55

As someone who has developed with Drupal for several years, I just want to add a positive perspective to balance the expected usual negative comments here. Drupal is a great CMS and web application framework. Extensible and flexible it can be adapted for many applications. Moreover, the Drupal community is knowledgeable and helpful. Growing from strength to strength with each release, I love working with Drupal. That is all.

Drupal definitely has a "cleaner" code base and better software architecture than Wordpress and a better security track record to support that. Wordpress may currently win on usability, pervasive in the "blogosphere" and provides an ease of cobbling together a site.
However, I think, If you take the time to learn the Drupal API, you will find it preferable, particularly as a developer.
Over the last ~10 years, I've used a range of similar open-source CMS products, from Typo3, Plone, Xoops, Joomla, Wordpress and Drupal and out of all of them, I prefer Drupal. I think in particular, I like the flexibility and extensibility of the Drupal codebase, as well as the Drupal development community.
