Windows Live Writer is now available as a free download. Notable because it has support for the Atom Publishing Protocol. Even more notable is that this entry was created with Live Writer. My hand written blogging software that exports a generic AtomPub interface works with Live Writer right out of the box. Kudos to Joe Cheng and the rest of the Live Writer team.

And there you have it. That alone a huge tribute to the value of the protocol, without even touching the deeper capabilities that it offers.

You might have said it's Windows only Joe?

Dave,

Sorry, since it's from Microsoft I thought that went without saying.
