Microsoft just launched the beta of Windows Live Writer. The fact that there is another Blog editor is not that significant. The fact that Microsoft has decided to jump into the Blogosphere in a big way IS significant.
With the next version of Microsoft Office SharePoint Server Microsoft has added Blog, RSS, and Wiki support for SharePoint. So now, SharePoint can serve as a blogging platform for both Intranet and Internet scenarios.
With this post, I plan to start using Windows Live writer to try it out and see how well it works. I also plan to try out some of the features. So far I like what I see and find some of the picture manipulation capabilities nice.
For instance here is the same photo as above transformed to black and white. Other transforms include Sepia, Temperature Adjustment, Color Pop, Sharpen, Gaussian Blur, and Emboss.
You can also insert Windows Live maps into a post – really cool
