    Better for what? Better in what way?

    What' you're asking is way to high-level and subjective to get any answer that will actually mean anything.

    The best thing that you can do is figure out what you want the system to be best for, and then ask that. That way you'll get a real response, rather then just a bunch of replies saying "XXXX is better 'cause I said so!"

    Ok better question...

    Which system is better for customization AND easy to use? I basically just want to show news and some modules there. I do not want something that is very difficult to handle. AKA building a theme, adding modules, etc...

    That question also depends on a few things. The main one is your individual knowledge of either system. If you know Wordpress, then Wordpress will be easier. If you know Drupal, Drupal will be easier.

    As a totally personal preference, I'd take Wordpress as it's a little more light-weight, and even though it's core code is a bit of a mess in a lot of places, it's still less of a mess then Drupal. I've also seen a few people saying that Wordpress can be easier to learn, but as I haven't looked to deep into Drupal yet I can't confirm that one.

    As per my view both CMS are good. i have worked on wordpress which is more user friendly and easy. Selection of CMS is also depends on your system means which kind of application you want to develop. Hence if you want to get more information then compare features of both the CMS so you will get idea which one is better for your system.

    Both are great systems of CMS but I think Joomla ! Takes too much of your time to set up and too much of troubleshoot conflicts. I prefer Wordpress platforms, You can make your website more powerful by using WordPress plug-ins which can be installed easily.

    I would opt for WordPress. WordPress is a great platform for creating a website or a blog. It provides with a wide range of themes and plugins to make your blog impressive and efficient. Moreover, it also has a huge community that you can look forward to for support.

    I think if you want open source then go for joomla and if you want simple cms with millions of free plugins then go for wordpress.

    Joomla is kind of complex when it come to develop as compared to Wordpress. In Wordpress you have pre installed plugin for everything. You can easily manage Wordpress as compared to Joomla. Trust me Wordpress has came a long way, you can find all beautiful dynamic slider, amazing pop-up and the percentage of Wordpress has really increased from past few years.

    Drupal


    Drupal is better. It is a very strong cms to build big and high functional websites.

    Actually, WordPress is a full-fledged CMS that can handle large and complex sites as well -- it's come a long way since it's humble origins.

    But that's neither here nor there, since the OP is looking for a simple site.

    I'd recommend WordPress over Joomla, both because it's easier for a new user to learn / set up / keep up to date, and because of the open source ecosystem that surrounds it. Drupal is also a good CMS, but probably not a good fit for someone who just wants to get one simple site up and running.

    Joomla needs a bit of work out of the box to be search engine friendly. When it comes to development, Joomla has its strengths and weaknesses. Although it may be difficult to learn at first, Joomla’s content-based model offers a modular approach to theming the layout of your site. Perhaps the main reason as to why people swing towards the idea of using WordPress is the fact that it has been developed with beginners in mind, anybody with a basic idea of how computers work will be able to play about with the system to make it work for them.

    Very shortly:

    - Joomla is much more powerful than WordPress
    - WordPress is easier than Joomla
    - WordPress is faster than Joomla because it's lighter - there is not that much overhead in WordPress
    - Joomla and WordPress are the same when it comes to security
    - WordPress can become very slow when you an article becomes to multiple categories (Joomla doesn't allow that)
    - WordPress can support sub-websites, Joomla can't.
    - Joomla's learning curve is steeper than that of WordPress
    - Joomla's JED is much better than WordPress's Plugins Directory - but this is a personal opinion
    - Those who work with Joomla are generally more professional than those working with WordPress - and you can find some real programmers actually supporting Joomla

    WordPress: - Best pick for beginners, works well for small to medium sized websites & blogs.
    In WordPress, the little programs that add features are called: plug-in

    Joomla :- Good for eCommerce type of sites, but require at least some level of technical coding. In Joomla, the little programs that add features are called: extensions which are divided into components, modules, and plugins.

    So, both are good it depends on your site requirement which framework is used. Thanks I hope my answer help you get more understanding of both the framework and difference between them.
