It’s about time I switched away from MT

Yesterday the authors of Moveable Type, the software this blog runs on, announced their new commercial version of MT and at the same time added that the free version would be limited in functionality from now on.

Seeing as I as an individual would have to pay at least $69 for the full version I’ll paraphrase Six Apart here… It’s about time I moved away from MT and find myself a better blogging software product!

What’s even worse is that in order to have a comfortable setup I’d have to pay $600. That means I have to look for a different product in order to avoid having to pirate the new version of MT.

Well done Six Apart! Smashing!

Update: I totally agree with this post and this one is right on as well.

I moved to WordPress a few months ago, and it was the best thing that happened to my blog. I wrote a How To move from Movable Type to WordPress over at my blog, which might be of interest to you.
WordPress lets me do everything MT did, and the support and user community positively rock!
