The licensing plan for Movabletype is changing … not that I can blame them. They need to make money, put food on the table, go on vacations, etc…. but for what I use a blog for (not much), it can’t be justified.
So I’m giving WordPress a try … it’s GPL’ed so there are no licensing issues.
So far it’s not too bad … although I’m a bit concerned about the performance. Even with a mysql database back end, and a P4 2ghz server, it seems to crawl.
