The majority of people are using  Wordpress, Joomla and Drupal since they are three best ;Open source Content Management Systems, I'm going to stick to them. Luckily, I've had experience using each extensively, and know the ins and outs of actually using the systems.  I'm giving you information from first-hand experience.

We tend to use Drupal more than the other CMS systems because we are developers and we can make many features work well for our customers.  We spend the extra time creating how to videos so that our customers can watch the video and get started editing the content they need to right away.  We also answer many of our customers questions by recording a video on how to accomplish the task.

Comparing Content Management Systems

 

 

 

Wordpress

Wordpress

Pros

  • Simple to use - No need for modifications 
  • Excellent for blogging or sharing thoughts in a sequential manner 
  • Users can get the hang of it quickly

Cons

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

Drupal

drupal

Pros

  • Extremely developer friendly. We love code and almost always pick this system. 
  • Strong community to help understand the hundreds of modules and tags available. 
  • Can be used to create some really awesome websites that can outperform a majority of other sites out there.

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 is not as easy to build without the correct tools.
  • Getting a Drupal website published could cost you more time, and thus more money, unless you have an expert company to set it up for you.

Joomla

joomla

Pros

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

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 1.5 but many webmasters are using the old versions (1.0.x)
