Textpattern is as much of a cms as a blog software. Its easy learning curve and xml type tag syntax makes it extremely user friendly to those with medium experience in xhtml and css. 5 stars!
Small and Simple

I've tried a lot of the popular CMS. Textpattern works very well with my skillset. You will need the Friends of Ed textbook to figure it out, but it is phenominal when you get it. I like the degree of control I have with Textpattern.

I agree with all the positive reviews for Textpattern. It's a designer's CMS. Not for novices. Lots of control through the admin interface. 5 stars.
