  Another area that I often mention when comparing Plone with other CMSes is deployment and configuration management. ie. buildout. No other system I know of has something quite like it. If you are talking to Wordpress people then see how they deal with having a development, staging, and production environments and how they promote changes in both content and functionality/theme/config from one to another. Whilst the majority of Wordpress people won't care about issues like that for their little blog, it is a very big issue to bring up for those that decide they want to try and use Wordpress as a full blown CMS.

All of my Plone work has either been on my own project or within Plone core (RTL, UI testing, i18n, etc) so I've never really looked outwards too closely. I going to do some searching around but wanted to see if anyone, in particular our Plone development shops, have any notes when they talk/work with customers on showing the value of Plone as compared to Wordpress.  Thanks.
