Day2 update on the fall out of Microsoft's New blogging platform Oxite. I must say. That I am impressed with the notary its getting so far. Then I ran into information that Microsoft is actually using this site visit Mix Site.
So it turns out that http://visitmix.com is also running Oxite. Mix is one of my very favorite Microsoft conferences that really brings cutting edge software to the developer that is relevant to them now not 18 months from now.
In this video, Adam Kinney, one of the early cofounders of Oxite, talks to Erik Porter and Nathan Heskew about what exactly Oxite has to offer. Erik and Nathan take you on a whirlwind tour of everything in the Oxite bag. If reading is not your thing, this video is for you. (6m42s)

As Ed said in his post this could be one to watch
Of course, the biggest strength of WordPress is the developer/user community that has grown around it. Because Oxite is open source, Microsoft can tap the expertise of its own enthusiast developer community. That should allow the platform to grow much more quickly than it would if releases depended on the small team at Microsoft that produced Oxite.
This one is worth watching.
