Drupal vs Joomla via Another Metric

Every time I bring up the Drupal/Joomla argument I can guess at what any Joomla user’s argument will be: “Joomla is more popular in Google Trends.” While this is undeniably true it is neither an indication of the quality or capability or either system nor is it the only metric by which to measure their popularities. Take a look at the Compete.com graph below for an example:

Site Comparison of joomla.org (rank #27,478), drupal.org (#26,856) | Compete
Site Comparison of joomla.org (rank #27,478), drupal.org (#26,856) | Compete

While this is just one of many metrics that doesn’t prove anything about the quality of the software, perhaps I should site it more often…
