I could have kept dating your last incarnation (D6) indefinitely, but sooner or later one will be forced to get with the times, as there will be no doctor to take care of you when you’re sick.

This blog entry and the discussion that follows sum up rather nicely the differences between you and WordPress, and the considerations one should take when deciding which to use.

By the way, to save the time and effort migrating the old content into the new system, I just used wget and turned the old domain into a static website.
