RIP MovableType Personal

From SixApart official site, MovableType.com or MovableType.org, there has no link for personal license, which is free for blogger. Now It is time say Goodbye MovableType as a personal blogger. As a senior user of MovableType, I am very sad about the decision 6A made. They do not support free version any more. No OpenSource version either.

I am thinking about other blog platform, or blogging software.

There are certain features I am looking for.

  • Import posts from MovableType
  • Keep same URL structure
  • HTML 5 compatiable
  • Mobile responsive design
  • Support social media plugins
  • Support comments system

I have a list of the candidates.

  • Octopress
  • LifeType
  • b2evolution
  • WordPress

I will try and see which one is the best and transfer this blog and all my other MT blogs to new blog system.
