  • Hey KD,

    I have the 2008 version and it is damn slow on my Vista… is the 2009 version lighter or equally demanding..?

    I have used an earlier version of WLW and it is one of the best for creating blog posts. I was hesitant to install this software — I have an inherent distrust of Microsoft, but their “Live” series is good stuff. They understand that people don’t use ONLY Microsoft software and websites. It feels MUCH more open than their Office apps.

    Also, there’s a typo in the 2nd paragraph “However on new change …” I assume you meant “However one new change…”

  • Nice I read your blog super .I am going to download the microsoft writer.Now I can reduce my effort.
