Freedom; Wordpress is licensed under the GPL which was created to protect your freedoms. You are free to use Wordpress in any way you choose: install it, use it, modify it, distribute it. Software freedom is the foundation that Wordpress is built on.

Community; As the most popular open source CMS on the web, Wordpress has a large and supportive community. Ask a question on the support forums and get help from a volunteer, attend a WordCamp or Meetup to learn more about WordPress, read blogs posts and tutorials about WordPress. Community is at the heart of WordPress, making it what it is today.
