Drupal and Wordpress are very different beasts, much like a tiger and a domestic cat. That's not meant to be offensive in any way since most people can't afford a tiger and the amount of litter necessary to maintain a hygienic atmosphere. There's a reason why you rarely see big cats as LOLcats. There's a reason why you don't run around with catnip in your pants at the local zoo. Of course, if one digs too deep into the metaphor someone is going to get upset. That is not the point. It allowed me to use one of my images. C'mon. Cut me some slack.
As someone with deep roots in Drupal, I'd like to return the Season's Greetings sent from the Wordpress community. It's a very well thought out article and rather than reiterate it, I'm going to add to it. The discussion of Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla is often blown way out of proportion and anyone busy defending their Content Management System of choice is going to find the flaws in most of the data out there. The Infographic comparing Drupal, Wordpress and Joomla by DeviousMedia is sufficient for most polite discussion, so I've included it below. Props to Joomla for the IHOP site. I am a big fan of their work.
Yesterday, I spent a great amount of time reading up on Wordpress because I'm planning to change one of my sites over to Wordpress. The reasoning behind this isn't that Wordpress is better or Drupal is worse, it's far more nefarious.
I want to broaden my skillset.
I've been with Drupal since 2003 and that 7 year itch has persisted for the last year, but it's a little bit more than that as well. It's also about the direction of the projects.
