Okay, I know it's an evil, but it's that the recent release of Movable Type 5 brings us a real clone of the WordPress desktop, but not only that.
It seems to me or Six Apart has thrown in the towel and follows Microsoft's dynamics of " if you can not improve what the competition does copy it ".
In a recent research conducted by Royal Pingdom you can see how WordPress is the platform chosen by 32 of the 100 blogs of Top 100 of Technorati both in the version hosted on WordPress.com as in own server. Of those 32 blogs 27 of them are on their own server.
Behind is the blog platform of Six Apart, Typepad with no less than 16 blogs located in the Top 100.
Ante this number Matt is really optimistic pointing out that if done in January 2010, WordPress will occupy between 40 and 50% of the Top 100. And what do you think, do you see it as clear as Matt?
