Wow. Michael isn't kidding when he says that the trackback pings on SixLog's announcement about the licensing scheme for MovableType 3.0 are hugely negative - I think Gigli got better reviews. Now, I'm a sole author of a single blog, so this doesn't affect me much (I do participate in a MT group blog elsewhere), but I've been trying to convince Tiffany that blog publishing will be the easiest way to share baby pictures and stuff like that. Will having a second blog with a different author mean I've gotta shell out?
If Burningbird is correct about needing the register with TypeKey to get 3.0, and if this really does mean that there's no upgrade path for a casual user like myself, well, my options are to stay put (which I would anyway for awhile, until the bugs get worked out) or to look for alternatives. As it happens, I'm good friends with the guy who did the MT Import code for WordPress, so alternatives do exist for me. If I have a choice, though, I'd rather not have to take that path - migrations make me grumpy. I'm gonna wait and see, and hopefully things will work out.Posted by Charles Kuffner on May 13, 2004 to Blog stuff | TrackBack
