I am very surprised and upset by the MT news surrounding the recent 3.0 release. I, like many others, had been under the impression that there were two versions being released. The MT 3.0 Free version and Pro version didn’t get released but a Developer Edition did. There are many, many discussions going on about the pricing and possible alternatives. I am planning on following this to see where it goes. SixApart could open the free version features up if a lot of users jump ship. And it looks like there is going to be a mass exodus or many that continue to use version 2.5. There is a great chart put together by Derek Balling that breaks down the CMS alternatives.
