Hey pocketmax, welcome to the forums!

1. EE is a lot more powerful, polished, feature rich, sexy and has a tighter community than Wordpress. Okay, it costs, but with the price you get fantastic support (and I know a lot of the support people personally - they're all very very clever people), a huge list of features, and overall a well designed CMS. Also you have to remember that Wordpress is a blogging platform first and foremost, and ExpressionEngine is a CMS.

2. Not quite sure what you mean here - you'll have to clarify!

3. Version 2.0, in public BETA (so is a tiiiiny bit buggy and there are less compatible addons, but great all the same) has been rewritten from scratch on CodeIgniter. CodeIgniter was actually pulled from ExpressionEngine 1.4?, and as the codebases started to move apart, EllisLab brought them back together.

4. EE can't use Wordpress themes, no, sorry! But converting them over is easy, and you'll love ExpressionEngine's tag system - it's much nicer than WP's cobbled API.

Jamie
