Changes to MT Licensing?
So, as you know, I run a blog on Movable Type… I’ve been waiting for the release of MT 3.0 to create a cascade of installations/upgrades etc. Oh yeah, and the purchase of a laptop et al. I signed up for beta testing MT 3.0 as soon as they announced the possibility of doing so but was sorely disappointed at the free license terms (hence my willingness to switch to WordPress). The interesting thing is that I’ve just received an email that hinted at improved licensing terms. I’m wondering what those would be…
Why is it of significance? Well, when changes to blogging software licenses lead to rival companies offering free licenses and a story on slashdot, that’s when you know you have a problem ;-)
