CMS: Joomla, Drupal, Wordpress Popularity and Activity

How popular is the Open Source CMS you use?

Due to many factors, we decided to use the Joomla CMS as our main Website Development Platform. This was more than 5 years ago. At the time, it was actually Mambo, or should I say MOS (Mambo Open Server).

I've always been interested in just how popular Joomla, and other major CMS and Blog software are. The results I found recently are quite interesting.

Joomla vs Drupal vs Wordpress Popularity Graphs

On Compete:

Wordpress gets close to 2.5 million visits per month compared to the 1 million for Drupal and Joomla as of March 2008.

As an open source developer, this is good to know. It is always good to develop open source software for the largest audience available. That way you get your software tested on a huge range of system and configuration, more feedback and generally more interest in your developments.
