I used Textpattern for years and years. Used it for all my person sites, professional sites, and stuff like the Sequence group site. Tried Wordpress a long time ago, hated everything about it compared to Textpattern, so I stuck with Textpattern and never went back.
A few weeks ago I decided to start a new blog. Out of sheer curiousity, I installed Wordpress. It'd been a number of years, I thought I'd give it another shot. Good lord, when did Wordpress get so good? It's...not even remotely the same CMS I used all those years ago. I guess stuff changes over time. Who knew?
