Well, for me, It has inspired me to look at Wordpress once again.
Me too, actually. I have a little time between projects right now and so I'm giving Wordpress another whirl, because of the enthusiasm for it expressed here in this thread. I would really love to be proficient in both platforms.
One question--are there post editors to replace the extremely barebones post editor in Wordpress? In Joomla I always install JCE for editing. My clients like it and so do I.
