For the past couple months I have increasingly seen Slash not just as a weblog, but as an application development platform. It is fun to work with, and fairly easy once you get the hang of how it works. It gives you "for free":
Template system so any sysadmin can make any plugin look exactly as he/she wants
User management (account creation, login, etc)
An API to get user and story info, display menus and titlebars and boxes, and lots more
...and probably more.
Of course, at its core it IS a weblog, and if you don't need story/comment/poll features at all, you may well be better off just coding it in PHP or something.
