Movable Type Plugin Survey Results

Not to long ago I posted about a survey I conducted at Six Apart to better understand what plugins people use most often. The results of this survey will be used to help shape the next major version of Movable Type, code named "Athena."

To those interested in the results of this survey, here is a summary of the results (or visit Six Apart to see the complete results):

1. What plugins do you have installed? (Top 5)

1.Multiblog30%53
2.MT-BlogRoll27%48
3.Compare24%42
4.SmartyPants22%39
5.MT-Akismet21%38

Two plugins I wrote made the top 10: Plugin Manager was #6, and MTAmazon was #10.

Thanks for posting those results. Pretty interesting results; a lot of those plugins were definitely not what I was thinking would come up. Yet there's the cold hard data.
