They aren't in it for cool technology, they make money by solving business problems and wordpress is an incredibly cost effective way of doing it. Plus, wordpress is open source and so it can't die.
Yes it cant "die" but it can be sold as it smart have been "done" bcs everybody that works and develop code for Wordpress is increasing the value for Automattic - Matt Mullenweg and Co owners.
Its smart like Google does, let people work for "free" in "Open Source" coding/project increasing the value for them for... nothing.
Joomla is owned controlled by everyone https://www.opensourcematters.org/organisation.html that contribute and can not be sold by anyone like for example MySQL one time was sold to Sun and ended up in its largest competitor Oracle when Oracle bought Sun.
