I’ve been trying out Windows Live Writer for a little bit here, because I’ve heard that it’s quite good. While I think the WordPress interface is just fine for writing and editing posts, it is kind of nice to have a better client user interface when composing posts.
So far my experience has been pretty positive, although I haven’t used any of the media-related features — I’ve really just been using it as a better editing environment for posts. I’m pretty impressed that it interoperates pretty much perfectly with WordPress, as far as I can tell. It’s actually a little strange to see Microsoft striving to integrate with something that’s not governed by an international standards body.
