Almost a year ago I converted my WordPress.com blog to a self-hosted WordPress.org site. While it has been running successfully for almost 12 months, I still miss the "slickness" of WP.com (e.g. Onswipe for iPad does not work on the .org sites at all). I am therefo considering switching back to WP.com, with my current site serving as redirect.
My question is whether anybody actually has done a comparison of WordPress.com after an upgrade vs a self-hosted .org site, specifically with regard to functionality and "clunkiness":
A) do you retain all features of WP .com after upgrading to a WP.com premium, or does an upgrade resemble WP.org more than WP.com?
B) is there a marked difference between a self-hosted WP.org site and a premium WP.com site (pricing is obviously different, so I was thinking specifically of performance and functionality).
C) can you run a CDN on an upgraded WP.con site?
D) any other advice/information?
Thank you for taking the time!
