    I don't know if it works, but you do not need it, you can set the behaviour of your frontpage in wpmu => admin menue => options => reading

    do some searching in this forum, look for frontpage and home.php thats all you need to know ;-)

    It does work but i opted for another approach.

    When i came to MU a few weeks ago i went for the same approach but you can achieve the same effects using other plugins as well as the built in functions.

    I actually organise mine by categories now.

    So my frontpage is actually the frontpage category.

    Then to assign just one static page (AKA a post) i use Category Visibility-RH Rev

    http://ryowebsite.com/?cat=11

    Which IMHO should have been core in wordpress from the beginning.

    Then i just tell that plugin i want only the frontpage category on the frontpage and away i go.

    To answer the original post, yes. It works in exactly the same way.

    For me, I just use home.php, and do whatever I want in the template.

    If I want to call the loop, I call it. If I want it for a category, I check for the category similar to the example in the codex.

    If I just want to code my own whatever, I do that too. Just because it's a template in WP, doesn't mean it has to call the loop, or anything at all.

    I could stick straight html, and no php or tags at all in that page and it comes up like a charm.
