    Save Windows Live Writer

    Following the branding change from Windows Live to Microsoft Apps, announced on the Building Windows 8 blog, concerns have been raised by bloggers who use Windows Live Writer.

    There is no mention of Windows Live Writer either in the discussion of the changes or the table included in the announcement. If you are a blogger using Windows Live Writer, sign the petition and include your prefered solution number.
    Proposed Solutions

    Solution number 1: Release a metro style app that behaves in the same way as live writer, including its plugin architecture.

    Solution number 2: Make Live Writer open source, this way the community themselves can keep Live Writer going and keep it fresh. There are no tie-ins with Windows Live ID anymore so no security problems should exist. This solution also keeps alove the huge collection of plugins that have been written for Live Writer which is one of the huge plus points of the software
    Go to Save Windows Live Writer.

    May the wind sing to you and the sun rise in your heart.

    I seem to be missing Live Writer.

    Latest Live update was installed ~a week ago.

    I didn't lose Live Writer with the update. Look under All Programs > Windows Live.

    I lost it long before the last update.

    It's missing from Live apps.
