From a website creator for multiple clients, I already have my tool kit in place, no need for WordPress, but one does what the client wants until you can prove the client wrong... in other words, the client is always right. My homegrown kit supports 1000K page sites, but it costs a bit. WP is cheap, and as long as the client knows I can't guarantee security via a third party app, the all is good.
Nothing wrong with WP... it enjoys a large and viable presence on the web... and BECAUSE IT DOES enjoys the same hacker attempts that "XP" enjoys. Hence a nod and wink to above commentary, and also to lorax (OP)... If something is THAT COMMON the bad boys will hack it. And they do: routine.
