Free

Works fine on the cheapest shared hosting (usually with 1 click install)

Instant CRUD

Lots of free templates (most, but not all, allow freely swapping betwen templates with no negative side effects as often as you want)

Very user friendly Administration UI.
I personally think this is the #1 thing about Wordpress and all that php haters should have to do is use a more "popular" programming language to replicate this UI and make it shared hosting friendly to capture at least 20% of the wordpress developers.
