I'm a big fan of Movable Type myself, but lots and lots of people use Wordpress and I have to say that it's a nice, powerful tool. Some of what's new in the latest 2.1 release of WP are features that were already in Movable Type, but it's nonetheless a solid update and a must-install for its improved site security, if nothing else.
Don't take my word for it, though! Go check out the official announcement:
WP releases Wordpress 2.1, "Ella" release
Oh, and naming it after my favorite jazz vocalist, Ella Fitzgerald, is splendid! :-)
