I hope to attend this (sarcastically named) session at the upcoming Drupal camp: WordPress is better than Drupal, developers take note. Drupal is far behind WordPress in terms of number of users and that’s a cause for concern in the Drupal community. I am straddling both the Drupal and WP communities and it has been interesting to see how the two products have matured. They are both much better than they were just a couple years ago.
WordPress is much easier to set up and use than Drupal, if your web site fits the WordPress model (which you can read about below). However, Drupal is much more flexible than WordPress, so some projects will benefit from Drupal.
As a developer, i find it helpful to be mentally flexible about the overall options for how to structure a site. But also to learn what is best about both systems and push the core developers to improve the UI.
