// What the hell? WP's new default theme "Twenty Ten" feels so familiar to me...

WordPress 3.0 is out. Normally, nothing important to me because I never used WP for blogging or something else (I don't trust its security). But now, I'm puzzled: The new default theme “Twenty Ten” got a very similar look and feel compared to my “mnml-blog” DokuWiki template I created for this blog.

Don't get me wrong: No one copied something from someone. I saw “Twenty Ten” the first time today after reading the article about WP 3.0. Additionally, I'm pretty sure no WordPress developer ever visited my small blog and “Twenty Ten” was started far before I began to develop “mnml-blog”. But it is frustrating to me that thousands of blogs will now look similar to mine. Argh. :-/

However, I have to live with it. It took a few days to create “mnml-blog” and I'm still very happy with it's look, therefore I will keep it. Shit happens. ;-)
