Six Apart announced few months back that Movable Type is going towards open-source when they released MT 4 Beta. Now the time has come and finally MT is going to open source from today.
If you don’t know what is Movable Type it is a weblog engine like WordPress. Popular blogs like Boing Boing and Read/Write Web are powered by Movable Type. WordPress has become more popular because of the open source and now Movabla Type wants to catch up with wordpress. I didn’t use MT much like wordpress so i am not going to compare both scripts, but both of them are great publishing platforms.
I dont think they are going to catch up with WordPress so soon.
Yaah they may not catchup with WP now, but they are the ones who can give competition to WP
