	I've used both Wordpress and Drupal. Both are good and both are bad.  
Because both are PHP based, they are not dependent on the port  
maintainer, if you are comfortable with keeping things up to date  
yourself. Both have made huge strides in the last few months to  
improve their systems to require less work on the command line in  
regards to updating.

	I recommend that you test drive both systems and determine what you  
are comfortable with. Most canned themes are available in both systems.
