WordPress is a PHP blogging system. Has a template system for site design.
It's well used and respected. And there are many plug-ins. It's open source.

Drupal is a PHP framework. You can create any kind of website with it
really. It's referred to as a 'CMS' framework because of huge 3rd party
plug-in support. Drupal is used as a backend to everything from blogs to
corporate websites. Drupal is also open source.

If you needed to create a non-blog site then take a look at Drupal. Keep in
mind there are many web frameworks: like ruby on rails. Django (python),
Seaside (Smalltalk), Zope (python), CAKE (PHP)- and many more. You can
probably find a web framework written in whatever language you want. And
soon, Transcript will probably be added to the list. ;)
