Come on folks, Wordpress is a CMS. It manages content, and has more features than half the other CMSs. At this point the blogging setup that comes by default is just built on top of general abstractions.

I've used it for plenty of projects, and IMO there are two things holding it back: the violent release cycle (frequent UI changes, out-of-date plugins, mandatory major upgrades) and the shitty performance (a standard install gets barely a single request/second on a common shared box, for a content-rich page - file based caching doesn't help much).

On the other side it's the most flexible, easy to customize and pleasant to use CMS out there. It's a shame, really.
