I’ve been in a kick recently to consolidate tools I use online, and am feeling rather rebellious about using all online-only UI’s. It’s also probably because I am procrastinating on a few more important issues, but I decided to give Microsoft’s Live Tools another chance.
So I’ve managed, in a few hours, to consolidate all my email accounts under Live Mail and decided to do a test post on Live Writer– and you are reading the result. If this works out well, I may just start up on the blogging efforts again.
The interface is classic Microsoft, so it’s instantly familiar. I feel like I am using Word and Outlook again, which isn’t a bad feeling I suppose.
On top of all this, I am also giving Live Mesh a spin. It’s been working great so far, even on a Windows 2003 server. Great, job, MS.
That’s all for now. We’ll talk again soon. Promise.
