I can answer partly as a user (i'm not a developper).

WP est great ok.. that OK but ..

But it is great IF you are pleased with the "out of the box" install.
If it's not the case, the newcomer to WP will find :

1) to much places to look for
As soon a s you want to make it do something else you have to struggle a lot.
Evene for people (like me) who the time passing by start to know
rather well the "WP community" it's sometimes difficult to find

There are plug ins : ok.. but everywhere
There are themes: OK but everywhere
There are support sites: ok but every were (i'm lost between the code,
the various plug ins repositories and so on)

2) lack of official endorsement for basic extensions

When you find something (plug in or theme) the main question is : is
it compatible with my version of WP ?


I think a basic user  wants in a single place :
1- the software
2- the basic extensions (themes, plug ins)

If this was done a lot of comments this kind could be avoided

My two cents
