Time for a confession: for being a SaaS-fan and sticking to using Web applications whenever I can, there is one client app I really like: Windows Live Writer. Simply the Best Blog Editor. Except you can’t work too long in it. It gets this crazy idea that it should own my entire system and it starts eating memory. The image below is not at all unusual for WLW: 85% CPU usage (on a dual-core system) and 1.2G Memory. Pretty pathetic. Perhaps time I really follow my advice and move this last bit to the Cloud, too.
