Free Movable Type blog hosting

If you want to use Movable Type for your blog but don’t have an always connected computer or simply don’t want to install it, you can use, free MT blog hosting.
I’m using MT for this blog but, if I had to choose the blog server today, I would probably choose WordPress (read a short review). Note that WordPress is free software while MT is not.

    Yes, MT is free software. The only time that you have to pay a license fee is if you want to use it commercially.

    Free Software is software that gives you freedom. It is not software that costs nothing. Free software in Italian is “Software Libero”.
    For example, you cannot modify MT and redistribute it, so MT licence does not give you this freedom and it is not Free Software.

    “Free software” is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of “free” as in “free speech,” not as in “free beer.”

    Free software is a matter of the users’ freedom to run, copy, distribute, study, change and improve the software. More precisely, it refers to four kinds of freedom, for the users of the software:

    * The freedom to run the program, for any purpose (freedom 0).
    * The freedom to study how the program works, and adapt it to your needs (freedom 1). Access to the source code is a precondition for this.
    * The freedom to redistribute copies so you can help your neighbor (freedom 2).
    * The freedom to improve the program, and release your improvements to the public, so that the whole community benefits (freedom 3). Access to the source c * ode is a precondition for this.

    A program is free software if users have all of these freedoms. Thus, you should be free to redistribute copies, either with or without modifications, either gratis or charging a fee for distribution, to anyone anywhere. Being free to do these things means (among other things) that you do not have to ask or pay for permission.

    Sorry, as I’m planning to move to another host provider who charges me per storage and bandwidth, I cannot offer free MTOS hosts now.
