Why not just use WordPress and WP-Blog?

That's a great question, and the answer is simply "ease of use".

Once you've run though the setup process a few times, getting WordPress up and running with RapidWeaver using the WP-Blog plugin is probably fairly easy.

However, it is a daunting prospect for novice users. They have to first install WordPress on their hosting account, then configure both it and WP-Blog correctly, and (down the road) possibly run into problems when WordPress is updated to a new version -- which means waiting for an update to the WP-Blog plugin itself (or trying to downgrade WordPress to a previous version).

Setup with Armadillo, on the other hand, is much, much easier. Just drag Armadillo onto a Stacks page, publish, and run through online setup (once the database is created, of course).

If you're someone used to the WordPress/WP-Blog solution, Armadillo probably won't appeal to you.

Armadillo is designed for RapidWeaver users who looked at the process needed to get WordPress integrated into RapidWeaver, and just abandoned the idea because of its difficulty.
