In retrospect, my choice of Movable Type was a fortunate one. Although I also use and appreciate WordPress, it’s a bit of a CPU hog. Given the viral highs and lows of my blogging career, there’s no way this modest little server could have survived the onslaught of growth with WordPress. It would have been inexorably crushed under the weight of all those pageviews.
What’s Movable Type’s performance secret? For the longest time — almost 5 years — I used the version I started with, 2.66. That version of Movable Type writes each new blog entry out to disk as a single, static HTML file. In fact, every blog entry you see here is a physical HTML file, served up by IIS just like it would serve up any other HTML file sitting in a folder. It’s lightning fast, and serving up hundreds of thousands of pageviews is no sweat.
[…] So, if you’re considering a blogging platform, I can vouch for not only the Movable Type software, but the Six Apart team, and the community around it. In all honesty, blogging changed my life. I’m not sure that’s directly attributable to me choosing Movable Type, exactly, but I can give it the highest praise I give any software I’ve used:
It Just Works.

Sinon, vous pouvez faire Korben, utiliser Wordpress et quémander des euros auprès de vos lecteurs parce que votre serveur ne tient pas la charge… ;-)
