Windows Live Writer is a very cool new tool. It’s a windows based application allowing one to write Blog entries on a local computer, then publish them to a blog server. Notice that I didn’t say ‘Window’s Live Space’ Server. This tool can be used to post to a lot of different services. Very cool! Plus, an SDK has been created, allowing developers to write plug-ins to extend the program. Sweet!
Now, if Microsoft only would have called it something different. By tying the name to Windows Live, people will think that it only works with Microsoft products, which is certainly not the case. One thing that I hope that they make sure of, get it to work with Sharepoint 2007’s blogging engine!
