Differences from WordPress MU

WordPress MU, developed by the core WordPress team, is extremely similar in functionality to Lyceum. The primary difference is that Lyceum stores all of its information in a set number of database tables (it has a normalized schema). WordPress MU, on the other hand, adds new tables for each weblog added (it has a sharded schema). [http://lyceum.ibiblio.org/faq]
