Six Apart Japan together with Softbank just started selling Movable Type in a box. Actually, it's a folder. Anyway, it's doing surprising well and is currently ranked #1 on Softbank's ECBuyers online store right now. Sorry if this sounds boastful, but we're pretty stoked.

"sell muscle ranking" "six apartment" goooooo babelfish :-)

Oh, and still nothing about the security holes and problems with comment spam (yes, I know there are plug-ins). I think after reading the slashdot article on MT/TP and being frustrated myself about a few issues that I am about to pull the pug and go back to self-hosting Wordpress or anything else.

Thanks for responding Anil
