I had posted a request for more support for blogging in the wish list in Joomla..... A lot of people had suggested that I was better off with using a external blogging tool..So after a look here and there and a bit of research ..... I narrowed it down to two blogging tools...... WordPress and b2evolution .......then I did some more googling at the end of which I felt wordpress is better than B2evolution.
Reasons are given below
One funny thing I noticed was B2evolution has a huge XHTML button on the bottom of the page and claim on their main page
"Web standards compliance.
There's even an integrated XHTML checker to help you post valid content."

Well I tried validating their frontpage and a few other pages It was full of errors Sad
the WordPress guys were very modest they don't even have a XHTML validating Icon on their page and all their pages validate And the best part is they validate as XhtmL 1.1 wow Kiss
OK I am not trying to say being XHTML is everthing just because their pages validate ........ I am talking about the ethics and the quality of works if you look at the chart comparison between wordpress and B2evolution in the references given below you will see that in terms of features they are almost equal.
Also a B2evolution Vs WordPress Google fight Click here revealed that WordPress is 23 times more popular
