WordPress to get some competition with Microsoft’s Oxite

Microsoft’s Mix Online today announced a blogging platform named Oxite. Unlike Microsoft but I’ll live. However what stands out most is that the platform is ‘open source’ and ‘standards compliant’.  This right here could be a game changer.

Most people point out that WordPress already has a huge community around it developing themes and plugins but let’s not forget Microsoft also has an evangelist following of its developers. You may be quick to dismiss the product and say it won’t beat WordPress, and you’re right. However competition doesn’t necessarily mean have the highest market share, it means fight for existing market share. IE is still the browser market leader but does that make Firefox and Opera less competitive? I didn’t think so.

Ed Bott says “This one is worth watching.” and he’s right.
