Joomla isn't too bad and is very customizable.

Ok guys, i opted for Joomla 1.6 but i noticed that v1.5 has more support and extensions so is it a good idea to move back to 1.5?

and i was checking this module Frontpage Slideshow, it costs 22EUR but i found this Ultimate Content Display (UCD) Module, its exactly same as Frontpage Slideshow, both are made by same team but UCD is free. Can anyone tell what its all about?

Not much of a change from 1.5 to 1.6

If you need certain extensions/plug-ins then roll back. Otherwise stick with what you got

WordPress. Maybe I'm a bit late to the party, but I never really did like Joomla.

I agree. I've setup several Wordpress sites, and they are incredibly customizable. There is a huge Wordpress community, and they put out tons of themes (aka. Templates). Also, there are custom Wordpress Theme Designers out there.

I would give both a try. You can set up a free Wordpress at wordpress.com and see how you like it.
