Taking a cue from Tom’s blog I decided to give Windows Live Writer a whirl. I agree it has all the nice eye candy one would expect from a WYSIWYG application but it falls short in one crucial area that I find indespensible. That is what I’ve come to rely on heavily with Microsoft Word 2003 and later. That feature is the research function. With the research function I can look up words, find sysnomyns and hell I can even translate into Russian.
So I’m stuck between two worlds. I’ll probably continue to create my post entry in MS Word and possibly cut and paste into Live Writer for finaly publishing until MS Word 2007 fixes the current WordPress integation bugs.
