Although focused at Windows Live Spaces, Windows Live Writer 2009 is one of the best tools available for general purpose bloggers. Its earlier version is part of the daily life of many professional blog writers.

I myself love it. I admire the new 2009 version even more. As a matter of fact I am an open-source proponent but the convenience of using WLR 2009 is so great that I too had to accommodate it as my primary post creation tool. I was introduced to WLR 2008  by Paul (A fellow Author on this Blog) Now we are both convinced that it  is a great productivity tool with a excellent interface and superb features.
