I’ve been a longtime fan of Windows Live Writer for many years. Alas, it has been unsupported for many moons and I haven’t been able to get it working with SSL. The good news is that Microsoft decided to release WLW to the open source community. The even better news is that someone has forked the code and taken up the mantle. If you’re an existing Windows Live Writer, I suggest you give Open Live Writer a try. The setup and user interface will be familiar and things seem to work overall.
