Moving to WordPress?

A good number of my friends have recently moved off of MovableType to WordPress. I have been happy with MovableType (I have a very good admin who fixes stuff for me when I break it) but am curious as to why so many people I know have moved over to WordPress. If you are a former MT user who has moved to WordPress and have strong feelings, suggestions, recommendations, etc, please email me and let me know. Pointers to other analyses are welcome as well.

If I get interesting comments or feedback, I will post it here and update this post.
