Submission + - Open Source and usability: Joomla! vs. WordPress (playingwithwire.com)

An anonymous reader writes: PlayingWithWire features an article where they compare two Open Source tools, Joomla! and WordPress when it comes to usability. The article did make a few people upset over at the Joomla! forum, but it does bring up a good point. Many Open Source projects are developed by engineers, for engineers. Should Open Source project focus more on usability? The article makes a bold analogy: "If Joomla! is Linux, then WordPress is Mac OS X. WordPress might offer only 90% of the features of Joomla!, but in most cases WordPress is both easier to use and faster to get up and running."
