windows live writer allows users to publish to the internet without having to change how they work. They don't have to log-in they don't have to know anything about web design or WordPress. Many users can publish to the same site. I set up websites for many office users.
When I give my customers a user name and password they usually don't post that much. When I set them up on Live writer, they post often.
Live writer gives my users more formatting options such as tables and text color
WordPress should create a similar product to live writer that works on all operating systems
all the admin functions could still be done though the web interface.
Systems that incorporate many users such as Facebook have the greatest success. I think live writer reaches more users and makes it easy for many users to publish to a site
What do you think is this the way of the future?
