Wordpress or Custom? Does Google care?

Im working on a rich content blog(not auto) and I happen to be a programmer and wrote my own blogging software complete with the basic SEO stuff including sitemaps etc.

My question is do you think it matters to Google whether I use my own blogging platform or Wordpress? Do you think Wordpress has an out-of-the-box advantage in the SE?
Thanks BTB, do you think Google gives WP an advantage over custom unknown CMS's?
I believe they do but only because of the different plugins that can make WP so powerful. Take away the plugins and you have just another site.
