Publisher's Description

Windows Live Writer is a desktop application that makes it easier to compose compelling blog posts using Windows Live Spaces or your current blog service. Blogging has turned the web into a two-way communications medium. The goal in creating Writer is to help make blogging more powerful, intuitive, and fun for everyone.

Windows Live Writer has lots of features which we hope make for a better blogging experience. Some of the ones we are most excited about include WYSIWYG Authoring, Photo Publishing, Map Publishing, Writer SDK, and Compatibility.

Excellent really - makes it very easy for all users to update their blog(s).

My only criticism is the Windows Live Installer - a stand alone installer would be much better IMO.

WLW works great in Vista, have been using it since the beta versions with WordPress hosts without issues.

Overall it's a very nive piece of software. Has a lot of funtions and possibilities, a fair ressource consumption and a friendly interface. Unfortunately - as a previous poster said - LiveJournal could be a little better supported (cannot enbed video files directly, cannot add tags the way they are added in LJ, and a few other small things...)
Anyway Live Writer deserves a strong 4 points and I would recommend it to bloggers.

Doesn't work so well with LiveJournal, as no support for LJ-specific features (like icons, mood/music, etc). Guess I'll be sticking with Semagic for LJ and maybe hold on to this one for my infrequent Blogger posts.

This works perfectly with Blogger, 2 clicks to setup Blogger, posts fast and easy with a TON of customization options, and easily writeable plugins. I was using w.Bloggar, but the web site is gone, and it is dead. This is much more conventient and easier to use.

Blogger/Google rolled out a beta today, I am curious to see how this is going to keep up with it.

"still not the best,and really not to easy to use..."

Erm.. How difficult is it to type in some text and click 'Publish'? :)

Anyway (fave word), for what it's worth, I thought this was the best app of it's type that I've used. It's certainly the only one that's worked on the first go for me - and without hassle.

It does what it's meant to.

I've yet to try it for posts but it basically does what the webpage does. The advantage is that one doesn't have to get into the webpage to post. Makes things a little easier but it's not essential. I suspect this is the reason MSN Spaces became Windows Live.

Blogging sucks. I don't care for the lives of dull, boring, average people. I don't care for what they have to say.
