I just spent the better part of a couple hours clearing out a large volume of spam from an MT installation. No indexing by comments? No automated closing of commenting after a certain date? No idea that rebuilding every single page for small changes is not scalable? No guarantee of stable licensing?
I know I'm behind by versions (that one's on purpose), late to the licensing-complaint dance, and not using any plugins, and nobody would (nobody should) use this shoddy software without some major enhancements. More seriously, SixApart, MT's production company, is based on a doomed premise, that consistent profits can be made on producing restrictively licensed software when perfectly viable and, frankly, better working, free options are in abundant existence. If no MT-killer exists now, one could easily be written. I don't see any useful long-term strategy in SixApart's business plan. Wake up and do your due diligence, you lazy business newswriters, SixApart does not deserve your accolades.
