What is the Purpose of the application (that is, what does it do)?
The purpose of wordpress.org as the creators put it, "WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. More simply, WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it," (Kyle-http://wordpress.org/)
WordPress is a great tool for web users who are interestied in creating their own webpages but who lack the technical knowledge that was necessary in the past. People who have WordPress "blogs" can easily post updates about anything from their personal lives, their business and a limitless number of other possibilities. (Amy Baumis)
