What Windows Live Writer needs…

August 14th, 2006 by Kristan M. Kenney

… a good user interface. I’m actually using Windows Live Writer right now to write and publish this post. Overall, I feel that while the feature set is looking good, the user interface looks like something from Office 2003. Can we please get the 2007 Office System “Ribbons” style going on here? I think that would really make this application stand out from the crowd.

Or, how about a Word 2007 meets Windows Live Mail Center style interface? That could be kind of cool. What do you guys think? (I’m going to make sure that the Windows Live team sees this message so if you have something to say about Windows Live Writer you can do it here).

Just my 2 cents, of course.

    I like the look and layout. Word 2007 is too bulky for a blog poster, and it doesn’t want to post in a format that WordPress can edit. I posted with WLW to my WordPress blog last night and actually liked it better than using the WordPress interface, which is the first time I’ve ever posted to my blog with a 3rd party editor.
