It’s also open source! I used ExpressionEngine as my work CMS for years and really loved it. It was quirky and particular, but it was also amazingly powerful. I never ran into something it couldn’t handle. I’m hoping it’ll take off as a free and open source project (although I haven’t used the updated ExpressionEngine—I used a fairly old version that has since been retired).
WordPress can be used as a CMS, but I feel like it’s not baked into its DNA. ExpressionEngine is really a CMS at its heart. This is awesome news.
