I’ve been using Movable Type for a while and all this hysteria over Movable Type 3.0’s new pricing plan is pretty interesting. There’s a very deep negative reaction going on and it’s hard to tell if it’s due to people not wanting to pay one cent for software or if Six Apart made a whole bunch of bad decisions. Personally I think there was probably a way they could have rolled this all out without ruffling as many feathers. I’m not too worked up about it though and I hope Six Apart does well, Movable Type has been extremely helpful to me.

That being said, I’ve been checking out a lot of the alternatives people have been talking about. So far WordPress seems the most interesting with the main features for me being that it’s in PHP (which I am decent at) and there’s no rebuilding (which is really slow in MT). Not to mention that I joined the WordPress IRC channel and they knew who I was:

* Now talking in #wordpress

So like I basically have to switch now. Maybe once my net connection stops going out every five minutes I’ll get a chance to take a crack at it.

I’ve been looking at GeekLog ( It’s got TONS of community type features. Probably too much for waht I do, but it’s some impressive software.

Check out TextPattern – I like it better than WordPress. It has a much nicer administrative interface.

We use an old version of WordPress on, and it works pretty well for us. I understand the newer versions are even better :-)
