I am not an OS bigot. I believe in using whatever tool works best to get done what needs doing. Sometimes it's Wintel, some times it's a Mac, sometimes it's linux.
Read this over at Everything TypePad. I'm always on the hunt for blogging tools. Since I don't use MS Office for my personal computing I'm not able to take advantage of the blogging capabilities of Office 2007. I've been using the ScribeFire extension for Firefox and it's more than adequate most of the time but it does hang on occasion, epecially on larger posts with images so I thought I'd give Live Writer a whirl. It's not bad, was easy to install and configure for my TypePad blog. You can find it here if you want to give it a spin.
