- Better looking interface
- Slightly more user-friendly interface
Or to put it in plain English, the MovableType upgrade takes more time than it’s worth. Perhaps there are some great things about the upgrade that I’m missing because I don’t use them, but as far as I can see it’s almost the exact same system with a new look and feel, and a new look and feel isn’t worth the upgrade process. If it were a one-click type of deal and took five minutes to do the upgrade I’d say sure, might as well do it, but it’s a bit more involved than that, and at the end of it all you look at it and say “Well, it looks better, but does anything really work differently in a way that will substantially improve the quality of my blog or the process of administering it?” Not that I can see.
