OneCare Family Safety: Help protect your family and computer

Windows Live Writer has improved a lot. Writer now has almost all functionality a non-techie blogger would want. You can spell check your entry, insert images and edit them, apply transform and overlay to images, insert tables, insert map, insert tags, insert video, etc.. Writer also provides a lot of plug-ins you can add to your write like MSN / Yahoo smiley, insert source code, picasa image plug-in, digg this plug-in, social book marking tags, etc.. try it out and you will make your blogging very easy.  This entry is posted through Live Writer. I can even see all the labels/tags and select from the list. This is really cool. A real WYSIWYG editor. Congratulations the team!

Windows Live Photo Gallery is very good tool for browsing pictures stored in your desktop. Provides tagging of pictures, you can make albums or categorize the pictures without moving their location in the desktop. You can post these pictures on the web at Windows Live Space or to Flickr directly from the Photo Gallery. You can do some basic editing and print from Photo Gallery. The gallery works faster than Google’s Picasa for me.
