The most popular by far is WordPress. It's estimated that it powers ~20% of current websites. Because it's so popular and wide-spread, there is much support and add-ons for its use.

You should have a look at the "Learn Wordpress" track here on Treehouse.

Hope that helps you. :)

There is another called Perch also
