Am I right in assuming that hosting elsewhere (like w/Yahoo or by setting up your own server) basically gives you more control--but it's also more complicated and more time-consuming? Is that the main difference?
It seems like there are a lot of posts on here by people who've "changed their mind" and decides to host elsewhere or on their own... And that it's a slight pain.
I kind of wanted to start my blog w/the right decision already made--so why would someone change their mind? Does hosting w/WordPress eventually become too "simple" for most people, or limited?
Doesn't WordPress.com get the newest features first--and the .org desktop version last?
Thanks for any input,
