Windows Live Writer brings WYSIWYG to blogging

Ever wish you could publish straight from a word processor to your blog? Microsoft hopes that you have, as that's the general concept driving the new Windows Live Writer. We already know that Microsoft is planning this functionality for the next version of Word, but they have now unveiled a free beta application designed specifically for blogging.

Windows Live Writer (WLW hereafter) is a desktop application that works with several online blogging services. Compose your post, position images, add categories... and publish! In addition to offering a WYSIWYG word processing environment, the application also includes a preview mode that can show you what your post will look like once it's live on your site.
