Joomla or Wordpress

My new Brittany website which is going to be mainly in French is and I'm not sure if I'm going to use Wordpress or Joomla to run the site.

I've used Wordpress much more than Joomla and DotNetNuke a heck of a lot more than the other two put together and squared! Why not DNN then I hear you ask.... well DNN is by far the best CMS package out there, but it lacks ready to go FREE plugins, unlike Wordpress and Joomla where the problem is there are too many available.

Between Wordpress and Joomla - I love the simplicity of Wordpress and hate the feel of the admin section of Joomla (oh I would love it if DNN had as many free plugins). However Joomla wins in the stakes of who's got the biggest userbase of tried and tested plugins.

So for it looks like it's going to have to be my least preffered choice of CMS website package, Joomla. On the plus side I'll become more familiar with it which is handy as I'm hosting Joomla websites for clients.
