So far I’m very pleased with this Windows live writer… I was looking at the "plug-ins" website and this one looks somewhat interesting to cross post blog entries to other social media platforms such as twitter and FaceBook.  After attempting to install it and wanted me to upgrade to ".net 3.5"… now I see why Microsoft is giving away the software for free… because it forces people to upgrade parts of their operating system which in turn makes developing on the Microsoft platform more attractive to software vendors which in turn creates more software available for Windows which in turn completes the cycle.
