Actually, I use wordpress alot for my own websites, and had in the past used Joomla, Drupal, and others, and I can say that Wordpress is awesome with all the Plugins, and Widgets. You name it, and its out there.
Also, Not sure if you guys have heard of PODS for Wordpress, but I know one of the developers for it, and it is actually quite amazing. Truly expands the customization "aspect" of wordpress.
PODS is a CMS framework that lest you create, manage and display your own content types. Somewhat similar to Drupal.
Scott Kingsley Clark is the developer I know, and he has truly done some amazing work here.
