    I have installed WordPress MU, and played with it a little.
    What i am looking for is to be able to add blog service to a site i have,
    mining i want users to be able to have a blog on my site i addition to other services i provide.
    so, when i try and create another blog throw wordPress, the other blog added lots off tables in the DB.
    it seams to me that this is a very high cost to handle some new DB table for each user, that will try to have is own blog.
    did i get it correctly? does wordPress all aim is for me to be able to have my own blog on my site, and not to host thousands of blogs?

    10x in advance,

    WPMU is to host dozens, hundreds and thousands of blogs. yes, it adds 9 DB tables per blog. it scales.

    If you're just looking one or a few blogs, try the regular Wordpress instead.
