Well, now I’m trying the ‘Publish to blog’ option under Word 2007 beta. It seems pretty cool, especially bcoz I can edit my post in the familiar Microsoft Word interface.
But on second thoughts, I don’t think this will replace other blog editors out there. Microsoft can, but will not add support in here for Technorati tags, del.icio.us bookmarks, ping-o-matic pings or Google Adsense – stuff that is commonly provided by other blog editors. In fact, they may not even provide Wordpress support. Maybe its too early to comment, but I strongly believe that this will be the case.
This is nothing but a tool to promote their own crappy blogging platform (MSN spaces or something) and will not be of any use to serious bloggers until they learn to play with the other players.
I don’t mean to be bashing Microsoft. But it saddens me to see how they limit themselves when they actually have so much potential to make great stuff.psycho.
Update: OMG, Word has totally screwed up my post! It had put in some weird formatting shit and now I almost rewrote the entire post using the Blogger editor. Damn.... Microsoft! After all these years they can't even make a blog editor properly...
