Testing Windows Live Writer

Started using Windows 7 on a netbook (my first one) this week. The first impression of a netbook is that ‘I wish this would fit in my pocket – It has everything I want in a netbook’. However, Windows 7 *seems* a bit heavy on a device with lower end parameters.

While discovering various new things under the hood, I stumbled upon this – the program I am using to compose this blog entry – Windows Live Writer. This is an old program – but new to me :)

This wonderful program allows me to WYSIWIG-compose blogs while offline and post them when I please. I can preview the blog entry while offline (once I have downloaded the whole blog of course).

All in all, I am quite impressed with this little program. Hopefully, the next blog entry will be about extending this program to add funky things. Now, it already provides adding photo albums (illustrated below with pics of my darling daughter), etc. It will be a challenge to top that. A challenge fit for a geek…
