Windows Live Writer – beta version launched

I have been a bit sceptical about Microsoft’s ability to adapt to the Web 2.0 world, but the blogosphere reaction to its new Live Writer announcement has been very positive (see, for example, Phil Wainewright’s view). In a nutshell (and to re-use Wainewright’s original wish-list), it is:

a simple utility that you can use as a familiar environment for composing your words for any application that requires free-from or semi-structured text as an input — email, blogs, wikis, document processors, and the rest

It is compatible with TypePad, so I will be giving it a whirl.
