  2. A couple suggested revisions:

    “Embedding You tube Videos” – EE can easily be setup to embed videos as part of a template.

    “User Roles” – User roles (or “member groups”) can be custom-defined as anything.

    “Query” – SQL query in EE is available out of the box. There’s also a PHP database class.

    “Language” – Multiple languages are supported in EE. Not sure what “translation” means?

  8. To people not familiar with both of these systems in depth, this list is full of a great deal of inaccuracies. Most of these lists are full of errors because the write is bias towards one or the other. But in this case, its not bias towards either. It has inaccuracies on both sides.

Tell me what you're thinking...
