Microsoft Live Writer for Windows 7
Microsoft has given some gifts for the new year.
Some, like new controls for your children’s web access is of no value to me. Other’s like “mesh” seem kind of pointless. It allows me to synch data from my IE and Outlook together on the web. If you don’t use both the point is kind of lost. But if you use IE and Office you might want to use Mesh to backup your key data and style.
But Windows Live Writer promises a nice blog tool. I like Blogger’s service because it is fairly easy to use, and I have been using it for over 8 years. But editing tool is a bit weak, and linking it to Google Docs has never been useful to me.
Microsoft Live Writer gives me a Office 2010 tool to write blogs with, which is something promising. Especially compared to the very limited Picasa function I usually use.
