There are two main reasons why this is so :
- Movabletype, being used a lot, is frequently targetted by countless spammers and I was becoming bored of having to delete spam comments every day from my blog. It’s possible to use Movabletype 3.x to solve part of this problem but the licensing issues bothered me. So I went for WordPress which is a 100% open source software.
- WordPress claimed to be able to import all my Movabletype setup automatically. And effectively, all (well, most) configuration, all posts and all comments were imported in no time.
WordPress rocks !
