I have built and maintain ten sites now with Joomla. It is way better than WordPress, which I no longer use. It is much more dynamic and if you know even basic CSS and HTML it opens up a world of options in Joomla. However, do not fear if you don't know CSS or HTML because there are a bunch of plug-ins and extensions which will do the work for you. Add to that a bunch of really great paid-for template providers and endless amounts of free templates and you won't be disappointed. There are intricacies which need to be learned, but it's easy to pick up. Highly recommend if you are going the CMS route.

Wordpress is for your hi-tech Grandma. Joomla is the best CMS out there. Yeah, it involves work and intelligence on your part. Great for SEO.

Stable and clean, but not near as user friendly as Wordpress
I have always loved the final product that Joomla creates on the front end. The back end is clean, but very clunky to maneuver around and no where near as simple to use as Wordpress. If the creators of Joomla can keep the clean look and stability, but make it more user friendly on the back end, it would be a great alternative option to Wordpress for those who want a bit of a different site look and use. These are the only two platforms I use now when creating sites from scratch in Dreamweaver. More tutorials would also be helpful!

Not secure and horrible performance
After 2 years of using joomla, my site was hacked. So I went to the joomla security forum and asked if extensions were reviewed for security. The first revealing thing that happened was my post was moved from the Security forum to the Extensions/Info forum. The 1st answer replied yes all extensions were tested with a link to the main extensions page to confirm (pure BS propaganda). The next post stated: No, there are too many extensions to test every one. But there is a "vunerable extension list" you see. This reactive security measure is to assign blame on you for not maintaining your site properly. Looking back to the numerous plugins/modules/etc I installed to pose some semblance of proactive security, I recall the cryptic readme directions given with most addons (more plausible denial mechanisms: it's your fault, you did it wrong). I had more so-called security addons than functional web site addons which caused the poorest performance for a web site. The joomla admin interface seems nice at first. Try to get productive. It appears that joomla is vehicle to generate revenue for addon/template makers and hackers. If you require security and performance is desired, look for another CMS.

Garbage, starts off looking impressive but ends up being garbage when you can't finalize the sit
If anyone wants a CMS which will get you 95% of the way to completion then cause errors preventing the website from displaying properly (the IE bug), or pathetically documented fixes to problems, or a blog section without the ability to prevent users from changing other users articles or deleting their images, than this piece of garbage is for you. Enjoy hours and hours of figuring out Joomla's features that should be easy to implement, but instead feel like the software developers went out of their way to make it more difficult to deploy. Garbage, starts off looking impressive but ends up being garbage when you can't finalize the site.
