I have 23 WP sites and in my opinion WP has two main faults...
1.) It's slooow. Doing your edits over the net is a big time-waster even on sites hosted at WP. I wish WP was set up like traditional site creation software where you make your edits on your local machine, then upload the pages. In this regard, even lowly FrontPage was superior to WP.
2.) To WP, everything is a blog post. Sure, you can do wonderful things by changing themes and css, but THAT'S the point, you DO HAVE TO CHANGE the css. It's not even remotely on par with modern WYSIWYG software. The WP text editor is crap and auto-formatting is a curse if you're looking to do more than just blog about your cat.
Yes, there are lots of plugins, but a good number of those plugins were only created to make up for WP's shortcomings.
