I have read countless articles on this topic, but still can't come to a conclusion.

I am familiar with DotNetNuke and have had enough of it. The ASP language is way over my head, since I'm more experienced with PHP anyways.

My next project is to create a site that allows certain users to upload a video and also have a description below it. I'm sure both of these platforms can handle such a simple request, but hearing some more advice from you guys would be great.

I also develop a lot of skins for DotNetNuke, and would need to continue to do that on whichever new platform I choose. Is one better than another at developing skins?

Thanks in advance,

I've played with virtually every CMS out there at one point of time..and Drupal and Joomla are by far some of the most advanced programs with a ton of plugins and customization possibilities..but with this comes a steep learning curve..

Both of have the capabilities of using alternate theme/skins..a lot of websites go to Drupal for sites that might take a beating..

I do not like the ASP language and do not see a need for most developers to learn or use it. Yes, I am an avid lover of PHP. Though PHP is more universal and can be run on more wide range of servers. I like that. When I started my degree in programming, I was quick to get into PHP.

I worked in Web Development and would personally go with Joomla.

The only thing Microsoft could make that would not suck, would be a vacum.

Personally I prefer Joomla as it's the first one I used for building a website it's also fairly easy to setup and to work with. I've not really used Drupal that much so I don't know as much about it as I do with Joomla.
