I'd personally wouldn't mind because I don't like CMS (though I see the interest, it's just not my thing. At all.) and especially PHP (which I dislike too) based ones.

That being said, WordPress is open-source isn't it? Open-source + huge user base == hard to kill in general, so I don't see it disappear in the near future.

If I had my way, I wouldn't need a CMS but clients like to be able to do their own content, and frankly, I'd rather spend my time coding than content populating. ¯_(ツ)_/¯

WordPress is open-source but, and maybe I'm being cynical, I wonder how secure that really is should a company really want to take control of it? I really should do some research into legal cases where open-source was challenged.
