I have thought that if in the next version WP and WPMU will have the same code, why are we still deciding between both installations?.

My idea is, since there will be only one WP and if you are a normal user that only want a blog, your admin panel will be the normal WP admin panel. In case that the user wants to create another blog, he can go to options and create a new blog (or enable to do it). From that moment (having more than one blog), the admin panel will be the WPMU panel.

To do this, would be necessary that every blog's table will be called: wp_X_posts, for example, even if you only have one blog, your tables will be called like wp_1_posts instead of wp_posts.

Doing that way, there will be some advantages:

  • Normal users with only one blog will not notice any change at all.
  • Easy transition from One-blog to Multi-blog, because it doesn't need a migration.
  • Real unification for plugin codes, because every blog's tables will be like: wp_X_posts, for example.
