On Drupal Planet, one of the first things I saw this morning was a quote from my answers to factoryjoe's review. The author of that blog post easily skipped the fact that it was me who copied this review to drupal.org infrastructure to make discussion easier and spent considerable time to review and answer. My answers was just, asking for implementation where I saw something great and turning down others. Often the latter complained about too many options to which I succintly repied that we are Drupal, not Wordpress -- Drupal has many features -- and yet, simple UI is needed but a simple UI is not taking away the options, see next paragraph. Also the author already forgot that we picked the same IXR library for XML-RPC as WordPress did and the decision to do this in 2005 was influenced by WP's pick. Guess who did the port to Drupal.
Drupal is willing to learn from whatever project, but the "too many options are bad" philosophy we can not adapt. Just this morning I worked with webchick on adding a way to add a vocabulary / term simple and quick while keeping our powerful and flexible "advanced" forms, too. So, yes: we are Drupal, not WordPress but we are willing to learn.
