WordPress vs. ExpressionEngine: Apples and Oranges?

Marcus Neto attempts to compares the two CMSs while explaining why he likes ExpressionEngine. Are they really apples or oranges? I suppose you could say that. Apples and oranges are both popular spherical fruit. They have more in common than theyhave different. Same with the two CMSs.

While I’m 98% a WordPress guy, there are a few circumstances I might take the EE route, like when:

  1. I knew I was going to need a whole bunch of different custom data types and groups and didn’t feel like dealing with the whole Pods or Flutter setup.
  2. I also knew no newbie client was going to need to get in there.
