    Concrete5 has a powerful migration of experienced developers that thoroughly use and enjoy it's MVC framework. If you are significantly knowledgeable in PHP as well as the other languages then it will not take long for you to recognize it's superiority.

    Yes, Joomla has been around longer so it has more share of the market - but that's an insignificant equation when it comes to deciding what are the best tools to use. If you're a "plug and play" developer then perhaps Joomla will have more (questionable) plugins to use. C5 sells packages that are not in conflict with each other and they are not all free. But the biggest advantage of C5 is it's architecture. It is built to be extended and expanded. That means you can plug in what you need (to save time) and build what you want on top of it. The system was originally designed with this ability in mind.

    WARNING: The architecture is pretty complex. It's not "dirty" complex, but complex nonetheless. If you understand it, it becomes very powerful to you as a developer. Personally, the time I have invested into it has paid off and there looks to be no intellectual-conceptual end in sight.

    "C5 sells packages that are not in conflict with each other and they are not all free."

    Nothing is free and can be used for something real at the same time in Concrete5. Just the usual lie to make business. Sometimes I can understand, there's no free lunch, but the approach was irritating arm in arm with the documentation.
