Growth of WordPress

Growth of WordPress    阅读原文» Over on the blog, there’s an interesting story about the growth of WordPress, the software that powers here, and the ecosystem around it . is different from every other social platform out there because in addition to giving you ownership of your data you get ownership of the code running your data as well , you could run the same Open source software yourself,and in fact we’ll even help you do it . Open Source is like a Bill of Rights for software that protects your essential freedoms.
