Wordpress is still great for small businesses. The problems he was listing off tend to be issues for large organizations.

This is exactly the correct response to this article. He is looking for features this platform is not intended for. Developers have mutated this system by building a ton of plugins that extend WP to match a full featured CMS, and to be honest that's what most people look for, an easy solution to extend a website and connectivity with the popular API's like twitter, dropbox, flickr, crm's , etc. But you should be aware of its limitations.

I've found WordPress to be perfect for small-medium sized things. Blog posts/news, static pages, image galleries, easy Youtube, dead simple social addons, etc, etc.

I'd argue that WordPress is extremely solid and mature for these uses.

Funny at least one BIG publisher i know of is looking to move from MT to WP
