I am not switching to WordPress, a blog publishing platform loved by many open-source extremists.

Before Movable Type moved to version 3, many people (including a huge number of open-source extremists) use Movable Type (v2) as publishing platform, because it was "open" enough. The company Six-Apart changed the license, and wanted to charging for software... a huge number of open-source extremists switched to WordPress because WordPress is open. Those who ditched Movable Type keeps claiming that it was because money, but in fact it was that they can't afford to pay for a license.

Further, cheating and spamming are usually intolerable in the open-source extremist communities, they seem to make an exception for WordPress creator Matt Mullenweg. Story: Matt Mullenweg used his extremely high Google ranked pages to harbour a number of paid advertising pages (link farm) secretly (i.e. hidden from end-users). (full story here) I am really surprised with the reactions by those open-source extremists, they are good at bushing non-open software, non-free software, they loathe advertisement very much, but it seems to me, they endorse Matt Mullenweg's unethical behaviour. (Perhaps, "endorse" is not a suitable word, they accept, and decide not to comment on Matt Mullenweg's unethical behaviour, and decide to continue support Matt Mullenweg's project.)

I am not an open-source extremist, and I pay for the software and license. Movable Type 4 is now open source, I have no regrets that I bought license for Movable Type 3.
