This is a new topic. Therefore, according to good netiquette, you should start your own new thread, not "piggyback" on someone else's.
That said, the reasons I prefer WordPress are many. Much like you, I'm expert in Dreamweaver, HTML and CSS.
1. Develop sites in 1/2 the time (and for client projects, 1/2 the cost).
2. Almost anything you can imagine can be done using one of the thousands of WordPress plugins (even stuff you wouldn't know how to do in a static site)
3. If you learn PHP and edit your WordPress theme's CSS, and also use inline CSS in your posts and pages, you gain back a lot of the flexibility lost to WordPress.
4. If you use a good theme, it will be rich in widgets, like the "plain text widget", where you can use ad hoc HTML and CSS to create stuff inside areas of your home page, sidebars, etc.
5. You can even sell themes or plugins you develop for WordPress
6. Mark Ling and Affilorama recommend WordPress and many of their courses and tutorials require it.
Hope this helps...
