What is even more interesting is the new Windows Live Writer 2010 to be included in Wave 4 (click for larger screenshot).

The new version completely does away with the old menu and introduces ribbon menu which is popular in Office products including . I am very excited about WLW 2010 as it looks like a perfect tool for created rich text posts and also has ease of use written all over it.
