Windows Live Writer

I’m writing this post using Windows Live Writer, one of the utilities recently released by Microsoft as part of Windows Live, a collection of services and software products created by the software giant to allow users to create and share content, among other features.

The software is extremely slick, automatically detecting that I’m using WordPress for my blogging software, and even going as far as importing the theme I use for the site and making it part of the preview window as I make this entry.

The Live software team marks a change in development for Microsoft, in that they do things differently: They release software early and often, compared to the rather slow moving operating system and productivity departments.

For an example of the faster release schedule, take a look at the current Windows Live Beta collection.
