The Internet is a tough place, especiall when your name is Microsoft and you’ve created a thing called Windows Live Spaces for blogging. Blogging is not only an interesting past time, but for many it is a business and the sheer number of blogs (where both companies and individuals showcase multiple blogs) that requires outstanding services.
Apparently, Microsoft has realized that its Windows Live Spaces isn’t fit for the job of offering bloggers the needed blogging support. Therefore it turned (of all possibilities) to WordPress as support for its 30 million clients. Of course, the benefits for both internet companies are obvious and outstanding.
Yet, I must point out the irony Microsoft subjected itself to by indirectly recognizing the superiority of a PHP-based blogging platform. WordPress, the most popular PHP-based blogging engine, has been a constant subject of ridicule originating in the Microsoft ASP community but now the tables have definitely turned.
