Movable Type Licensing Angers Users

The blogging software I use, MovableType, has transitioned to a pay-licensing scheme with the release of its v3.0 "Developers Edition". It will still be free for single-user sites like mine, but most people are furious (see the hundreds of comments listed after this announcement), calling the new licensing schedule restrictive and damn expensive.

Seems SixApart (the company that owns MT) is back-peddling with this "clarification", but most people (such as Mark) will still be dumping MT and moving to other blogging software such as WordPress (formerly b2/cafelog), which is licensed under the GPL, or TextPattern.

Blogging is a huge phenomena. I was doing it before I even knew what "blogging" was, or before I heard about blogging software. The page you're reading now was created with Macromedia Dreamweaver, as is most of the site. (I started with FrontPage.)
