Clarification: As a designer, I sell innovation! Stuff that mostly  
nobody delivered before.
But if a 1000 flys cannot be wrong eating more sh... is not an option.

WordPress had a lot of luck when the movabletype vendor/developer did  
the well known mistake to change their licence policy and initiated a  
switch of the whole community to WordPress.

The chance to jump on a train like that is rare but should be catched  
if e.g. Sharepoint fails. But hopefully we are in the sharks reef  
instead of the gold fish glass. Be careful and have fun!
