Ian Bicking: the old part of his blog

Blog software comment 000

Perl would be fine -- then I wouldn't even be tempted to modify it ;) -- but the proprietary part is a big turn-off.

Has anyone else noticed that there was all sorts of buzz about MT, and lots of blogs using it, until it changed its licensing? Now I almost never hear about it; zero buzz, and proportionally it seems like a fairly marginal piece of software. Well, really it's that the hosted options have become incredibly dominant; and even though MT was never open source, people in the open source community were suddenly reminded of that (and left in droves) when they changed their licensing, and those are the blogs I tend to read.
