If you need a WYSIWYG blog tool (for free) then this may be the one for you, I've been using it for some posts in the last month ro so (I didn't have it on all my machines) just to compare the experience. I can assure you this tool is much easier to use and in effect lets me write and post faster than how I posted before (that doesn't necessarily mean you'll be seeing more posts from me!). The main advantages to me of Live Writer are spell check, easy category setting and a simple interface.
My blog runs on Community server, but many others are supported, just enter your blog URL, Username and password during the setup - it's that easy...
