    WordPress MU, is the multi-user version of WordPress. It is ideal for people who want to set up a large network of blogs. WordPress MU is the underlying software that powers the WordPress hosted blogging service. WordPress MU is also used by newspapers, magazines, blog networks, universities and large companies running corporate blogging systems behind firewalls.
    Using the WordPress multi-user edition, you will be able offer users an opportunity to sign up for a new blog. They will be able to securely manage their templates and settings without affecting any other users. You can have unlimited users with unlimited blogs, and users can have various roles (administrator, editor, author, contributor, subscriber) on each other's blogs. One or more Site Administrators can perform site-wide management tasks, including adding users and blogs, altering permissions and granting access to themes.

    It seemed great at first, but then I always had trouble with Mu as it seems like a lot of templates and plugins run into issues with sites on a Mu platform.

    If you'll create you WP MU website, be careful of spammers, who try to create free pages on your website for backlinks building

    I see a lot of potential with WordPress MU, with the right idea and the right niche. We're doing something similar currently with BuddyPress.
