Windows Live Writer lives on as Open Live Writer!
I am happy to be posting this blog entry from the newly announced Open Live Writer! The most excellent blogging tool has not been actively developed for some time. But efforts have been made and now a fork of that well loved application is now provided as the open source project Open Live Writer under the MIT license.
You can get the latest version at their home page http://openlivewriter.org/ and if you want to get involved with helping continue to make it better check out the source at https://github.com/OpenLiveWriter.
Looking through my email archives, I made an internal suggestion to open source this back in April of 2014. I have no idea if that started the actual process because I wasn't involved, but if it did, your welcome
