ZDNet’s description of WordPress

ZDNet has vividly and succinctly portrayed WordPress in its download page like this:

WordPress is a personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, Web standards, and usability. WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPL. It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is fresh software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product. We hope by focusing on user experience and web standards we can create a tool different from anything else out there.Version 2.3, named “Dexter” for saxophonist Dexter Gordon, adds native tagging support, plugin update notification, URL handling improvements, and other new features.

I really feel nostalgic about my b2 days – I miss you, Michel Valdrighi!
