[I'm on the Windows Live Writer Team]

Hi Rick,

Just wanted to let you know that if we failed to delete the 'turd', that's just a bug (we try to delete it no matter the platform). We show the error message when the server returns an error when we try to delete the post. My blog is a typepad blog and I haven't run into this problem yet, but we'll check it out tomorrow. [FYI, the turd is used in detecting the style of your blog- other apps haven't done this since they don't use your weblog's style :) ]

As for Onfolio, you're right that some of the little things are artifacts of the fact that we've been working on this for some time, even prior to being acquired by Microsoft. You can expect that stuff to get ironed out as we tighten the product up! Sorry we missed them for this beta!

Thanks for the feedback!

The Windows Live Writer folks did a nice job. Also check out RocketPost, It's far more advanced than Writer, and there's a free version. (I designed it.)
