MovableType is moving agains wordpress growth?

Movable type is opening part of the code, but:

  • there will still be 2 versions, the open one and the commercial one
  • the open version will be released in Q3 2007

So why the big announce now? I think it’s to get attention, I heard about some big MT users that were about to move to wordpress but now MT says “hey wait wait, you want open source, we’ll give you open source” and now they’ve time to evaluate feedback.

Personally I like double licensed software but only when the only different thing is the license, anyway a bit of open source competition will be a good thing.
