“WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time.”
One of the perceived problems of Free Software in the light of traditional market economics is that if it’s free, then it can’t be worth anything (the whole idea that scarcity increases value, so that pure gold is more valuable than clean air).
But from my eminently unbiased front-end developer perspective, I can tell you that the WordPress ‘User Experience’ is a joy and a blessing. Thank you, all of the WordPress team for a magnificent effort.
(You can set up your own web site for free at WordPress.com, which also uses version 3, and try it for yourself).
