I agree with dhry. Wordpress installs rapidly and with practically no fuss at all. MT on the other hand is insanely frustrating to install, especially locally.

If you want stability and flexibility, with a no-hassle installation, go with Wordpress.

If that screenshot is of v4, then it STILL has the blasted "rebuild site" options. No thanks. Software like this only gets one chance. Like I said, Wordpress kicks this into a c***ed hat. Straight out of the "box", Wordpress was impressive and continues to impress - especially with the timely security updates and the wealth of available plugins. I wouldn't ever bother with MT again.

I suggest people who leave bad comments here to actually TRY v4 of Movable Type. All that bad mouthing REALLY sounds like v3 to me.

#1 blog platfrom, well, since v4 at least.

I really hate the drop down menu with v4. The guy who designed it should be flogged.

My wife registered this software some years back. She loved it. I hated it. It's painful to operate. The whole "rebuild pages" thing is ridiculous. After a while we both got jack of the thing and it sat without being updated on our website for maybe a year and a half. I checked out Wordpress a couple of months before my kid was born and LOVED it. We uninstalled MT and installed Wordpress to run a personal baby blog and haven't looked back - the interface is so much more straightforward and there are a LOT of plugins out there. MT isn't in the same league as WP. Do yourself a favour and don't bother with MT. However, SixApart haven't done too badly with http://www.vox.com - go get a free blog page there instead of installing this rubbish.

The online demo is as foreign looking as the 1st time I looked at Word Perfect for DOS. Also, trying to get information is far from easy.

I have to agree with previous posters, MovableType is the #1 blogging engine, considering code quality, features and support.
I'm pretty sure v4 will be a great success for Six Apart and MT users.
