Have any of the experienced hands at Webmasterworld any regrets using WordPress Multisites to manage a lot of site's, or , if based on their experience they would be recommending of any significant issues to look out for.
Did it do what you wanted, or did anyone hit any costly development or webmaster snags at some later point that other's could benefit newbies to be aware of.

The one downside I've had with drupal multisites is when modules and themes get updated at different rates, so if you have a core update and some modules are incompatible, you are stuck.
If you use the same modules on all sites, no problem - you're stuck no matter what. But if you have 4 simple sites and one that is all tricked out with a complex theme and a zillion plugins, your update may be held back for all sites while you wait for compatible plugins for the one site.
If the sites are all rather similar and start with the same base theme and similar sets of plugins, no problem.

There is no duplicate content. I mean you can set it up so that it redirects to your domain name. So for example if you go for a multisite subdirectory install and then use the domain mapping plugin you can have it redirect from the subdir to the domain.
