Net4gains, I agree with you.
After trying out Joomla for 5 months, I tried WordPress for only around 2 months and already, I find that the WordPress system is very much easier to customize and understand.
Functionality-wise, Joomla is just tiny a bit better as WordPress lacks some features like, for example, a community-building plugin. I don't think you can create a community site (like Facebook) using WordPress as easy as you can using Joomla.
In conclusion, I would say that generally WordPress is more user-friendly than Joomla and whatever I want to achieve using Joomla, I can, using WordPress and even much easier and better.
So, I'm sticking to WordPress for now. ;-)
