[internetworkers] Wordpress-mu or MovableType ?

I've been thinking of converting the main site over to something like drupal
for various reasons unrelated to my original blogging question - I
installed 5.1 to experiment with.
The site mostly publishes articles. Although there will be about 40
bloggers, the site needs to cope with 1000+ concurrent unregistered users.
Because of the way drupal dynamically queries the installed modules and
themes on every page render, I'm concerned about how well it will scale to
this usage level w/o a lot of customization.
Any experiences with this volume ?

Yeah the admin console is much better in 5.1 and I understand why you
found it irritating. Its still not beautiful but I think that has a
lot to do with incredible granularity of control Drupal gives you.
IMHO, it fits perfectly in this case. Many bloggers with different
needs requires a lot of fine control. I've launched a site with far
more bloggers than this also with the requirement for different
templates last year and it worked very well with Drupal. The problem
with WP last I checked was the limited security control. With Drupal
you can define your own roles and an infinite number of them.
