Joomla is a fork out of mambo, so they are supposedly very similar.
I am looking at moodle.
From the feature list it looks good.
I will also try drupal 6.1 and see where have they gotten upto.
whew choices choices choices.
Choosing a distro is so simple

Installed both Drupal 6 and Joomla!
Joomla! is slick, but a little crytic.
Breadcrumb is only 2, and for little things you need to go hack the CSS file, and it lacks structure a bit.
But the good looks compensate for what is actually a pretty average product.
On the other hand drupal 6 is complicated powerful and very well structures, but looks as good as the rear end of Sus scrofa domestica.
Some theme work is needed I guess

if you want your site to look good, go for Joomla. If you are a good programmer + themer, or if you have access to one, go for Drupal
Joomla is much easier than Drupal to learn and setup, IMHO. But the real winning point for me is the number of gorgeous templates that are available for Joomla. You have got JoomlaShack, JoomlArt, RocketThemes, YooTheme, JoomlaJunkie, and many many more. Unfortunately, most Drupal themes dont look as good. And clients dont want to know technical aspects of a site. All they want is for their site to look good.

But I am the programmer, I am the installer. Its me me me.
And I don't like editing css files for changing the header image or small layout changes.
The Joomla thing lacks structure, and makes up for it in eye candy.
I think I will run both for a while, parallel site maintenance, and then dump one of them.
As of now its drupal all the way, who know I may go ahead with something else altogether someday.
