I'm new to WP.org, having previously only worked with the online WP.com version or Dreamweaver for relatively simple sites. Rather than choosing Joomla or Drupal, I was wondering how effective WP.org might be when it comes to building an entirely new site - nothing too complex. In fact, something along the lines of this site, i.e. WP.org. A menu with a navigation area and drop-downs, complemented by a blog area.
Can WP.org rival standard CMS solutions such as Joomla. I have enjoyed using WP.com for blogging purposes, but it seems to be more limited when it comes to building a website.
