    I've been using wordpress for quite some time and even adapted it into a CMS for one of my projects and I've never run into any problems.

    As others said, its nice'n'easy, and its installation is extremley simple. I've been using it to manage my site's contents for a few months now. No problems so far (except for occasional slow downs).

    You use Pages rather than Posts and use the Static Front Page plugin.

    It totally suck! It's friggin hard to configure and so damn blurred. OK enough about our cable TV. Wordpress is cool. It's quite a favorite of some of my colleagues and you'll get a lot of live support specially now that they've got ver 2 up and lots of theme developers around the corner.

    Blog = Website. Lots of plugins to choose from and I guess it all depends on how you present it.

    wordpress is one of the best scripts ever, free or paid for. Extremely easy to use, theme, customize, and design for.

    Started a blog on my site and now I just hate chosing Wordpress. I still have a lot of learning to do, but the main impression is that I hate it. Maybe I'll start on another script

    The only problems I have with it is creating themes for it. It's a complete nightmare.

    My site is still in the early development stages but by using word press as the basis, I am certain I have saved myself hundreds of hours of development.

    If you want your site to do what wordpress can do, then there is no point in re-inventing the wheel.

    Customisation is easier if you have some previous experience with php or programming in general, but on the whole it does what it is supposed do, very well.

    I found a theme on the wordpress site that had a similar layout to the site I was trying to create and I worked from that to get it to where it is now.

    Been using Wordpress for 2 years now, tried many many before that, all except moveable type but opted for wordpress as it was easy to install and the plugins and themes make it very customisable, also found solutions to any hiccups via the wiki.
