Warts and all, this page is now Movable Type-free. If you don’t know what the big deal is then you’ve never used Movable Type. MT was the first actual blogging platform I ever used. Prior to that I had played with CMS tools like PHP-Nuke, but I think I finally made the move to MT around 2003. Everything was good, even when I started using WordPress for another blog a few years later. After extended use of both platforms I finally woke up one day and thought, “What am I doing?” Long story short, WordPress has all of Movable Type’s strengths and none of it’s weakness. If it came down to a single issue, I would say MT’s site publishing process stinks on yellow ice.
So, here we are. There’s still work to be done, but at least progress has been made. Just not by Movable Type.
And lest you think I’m just being dramatic, check out MT’s blog showcase. MT is used by such winners as Britney Spears and Barack Obama. So there.
