Disgruntled Movable Type User?

I have refrained from making any suggestions so far, but I have to promote WordPress. If you are a Moveable Type user and are unhappy with the recent developments, please take a look at WordPress.

I will not tell you that you should do it because all the “cool bloggers” are doing it, but because the transition will be worth it. WordPress makes it very easy to import your old MT entries and the support forums and the IRC channels are hopping. In addition, the features list keeps growing, a new version 1.2 is around the corner and development is very, very active. There are some very good resources available on the web to make this transition.
