Posted By Darren Rowse 12th of May 2006 Blogging Tools and Services 4

See if you can work out which platform is which before you head over to Rachel’s blog to get the all important color key that reveals which one is which.

  1. I love drupal, but it is the Linux of CMS. It can be so cryptic that it makes you want to kill people and break things. I think the only reason its so high is because you have to scoure the Internet to find things out.

    Drupal = Linux of CMS/Blogs
    WordPress = Windows of blogware (everyone uses it)
    Expression Engine = Mac of blogs (pretty and simple, but popularity isn’t as big as it should be)

  2. Checking blog platforms popularity was the first thing I did. The light blue line is WordPress, if I remember correctly :)

    I agree about Drupal. I love it, but it’s frustrating because not every domain host supports the necessary database privileges.

  3. […] Sichtbar ist der doch recht deutliche Vorsprung den WordPress ihn Sachen Blogsoftware genießt. Jedoch ist die Anzahl der Suchphrasen bei Google sicher nicht maßgebend für die Anzahl der tatsächlich eingesetzten Blogsyssteme durch die User. [via] […]

  4. The last time I set up a blog it was with WordPress and I had to fix the code behind it. I don’t know about the latest version but that version (1.5 I think) had some bugs in the code that affected cross browser compatibility as well as causing some validation problems. In other words, I found the code to be in a mess.

    As I was able to fix the code I may give the latest version of WordPress a try when I set up another blog but I’ll be comparing it to the latest version of TextPattern.
