Not as extensively. :)

I won't belabor this thread with a competitive analysis of WordPress'  
mindshare over MT as the answer to that question is multifaceted. But  
I will say that the fact that WP is written in PHP has A LOT to do  
with it. It also has an incredibly liberal commit/patch policy,  
lending to both the speed of its advancement and negatively to its  
security; but most importantly to its success in recruiting new  
developers to the platform.

That is great to hear. I am working on a project hopefully that will  
get the folks from this community perhaps more actively engaged in the  
development and advancement of MT. I am very proud of MT and remain  
committed to its success.
