I think the way how wordpress is developed and presented is great! The content management system is very friendly and made by individuals, freelancers, similar people who uses wordpress. It's platform from people to people.
On the other side of wordpress is the themes! The number of templates you can buy today extremely big! It's sort of majority of what you see on the internet currently. It comes down to the same thing! People who design or develop those templates are mostly creative individuals who bring all the current trends and use them! Everything is updated to current trends in webdesign and they also creates different versions and creative variations of theme designs.
