FastCompany On Why Small Businesses Need WordPress

Francine Hardaway gives her six reasons as to why small businesses need WordPress on the FastCompany blog. While all of the reasons she gives are good ones, I needed to take a moment to correct her on number 1. WordPress does not have an in house e-commerce plugin. Francine probably got confused with the WP E-Commerce plugin which to someone who doesn’t know the ins and outs can be confused to think it’s part of the software. She also mentions that the e-commerce functionality will be built into 3.0 which is not the case. I’m sure many people would be happy to see e-commerce be available for WordPress out of the box but I feel that use case is better suited for plugins or even a mildly forked version of WordPress.
