As part of maintaining this blog and the Canadian IT Pro blog - offline blogging software is a must. I was previously using an internal build of Windows Live Writer when I recently switched production laptops instead of using my tried and true BlogJet blogging software. I figured - "Hey - why not? A fresh install of Vista deserves some more DogFood..." Once I tried Live Writer - I was hooked. My only disappointment at the time was the fact I wasn't able to share it with people outside Microsoft.
I noticed on Canadian IT Managers that Barnaby mentioned Live Writer going public on Sunday. Well I'll be... After checking out their live spaces site it looks as if Windows Live Writer is getting some very good reviews out there in the blogsphere. I've posted this up on Canadian IT Pro and I am testing the editing capabilities once posts have been made.
If you haven't checked it out yet - have a look see.
