MT didn't lose because Wordpress 'won'.

It lost because installing it killed your server as soon as the first spambot found out where you were keeping the comment-post script. Used to manage a commercial blog network and buttonholed one of the 6A people in London when I still lived there - the response was essentially 'nob off, we don't care'.

Wordpress is in a great many ways bloody awful. But it couldn't ever be as awful as that. At this point there's no point in fixing MT (if they haven't already) because... who cares anymore?
