Movable Type Goes Open Source

It’s the smart move: Movable Type is now open source. This will make life a little more complicated for WordPress, but that’s all to the good.

Movable Type has some features WordPress still doesn’t have, but WordPress has developer community that is truly thriving and innovating. The competition will be good for both companies, and especially for users.

Note: This blog uses WordPress, but will be shifting fairly soon to Drupal, most likely — not that Drupal has a particularly good blogging system (it doesn’t) but to tidy up behind the scenes.

    Movable Type is a far superior system for large multi-user blogs, while WordPress rules for one-off blogs. The WordPress developer community is pretty dynamic, but it’s never too late for MT to catch up. The “under the hood” pieces of MT are far superior, IMHO.
