Joomla vs Wordpress

Hi guys, so i hope this is the correct place to post this, but since the language is php i guess it is…

i’ve never used joomla or wordpress before, although i’ve been playing around on both of them recently, but i just need a ‘professional’ opinion…

Which one is better?

i know both of them have their ups and downs, but overall what would work best. the site i want to use it for will eventually turn into a big thing and i might have to get it custom developed eventually according to what i want, but starting out and letting it grow i need to start with a system that can add functionality without me having to find a developer. i’m not a developer, but i do understand how to read the language and somehow figure out what is going on…

You’ll get biased “professional” opinions. To make it short, I personally would go with WordPress if I had to choose.
I won’t disclose the reasons, it’s purely subjective.
You cannot say which is better, that topic is so vast in scope that you could write a book.
