    Let's look at wrenches: allen wrenches, pipe wrenches, crescent wrenches, torque wrenches, etc. Do you hear mechanics and plumbers arguing which one should be used exclusively? Ha, ha, I think that a pipe wrench makes a great hammer if you turn it on the side. Or, you can hit your computer with it when the programming isn't going well. In any case, it is best to learn what each one does best. Then when you are at that next cocktail party and someone asks you about a technology you don't use, you can discuss it intelligently ad naseum. Sigh, I guess I'll even have to accept .NET as a real tool if I want to follow my own advice.
    And if the only tool you have is a hammer everything starts to look like a nail.

    Drupal Vs Joomla

    Drupal is much harder to learn and use, that is why it is called the 'programmers' CMS'.
    Yes, from the learning point of view , Drupal may be cumbersome to become experts but the end most results favours to the Drupal only .
    Drupal is the winner here because it scales well and is rock-solid under heavy load. When the server is pushed beyond its capacity, Drupal shuts off gracefully and doesn't crash. As soon as the server is back within its traffic capability, Drupal will handle all requests smoothly again.

    On the other hand , Joomla can handle heavy loads of course, but does not scale as well. The description 'most stable CMS' implies the one that scales best, ie handles large numbers of plugins, high page numbers, and heavy loads best. Joomla is not as stable when heavily extended (lots of plugins).
