Test post from OpenLiveWriter

I saw with dismay that Windows Live Essentials is reaching end of support in Jan 2017 – dismay because it contains the fantastic Windows Live Writer.  Also, on a PC I’m setting up for middle child, I cannot get the old installer to work. But now I’ve found that OpenLiveWriter is available for download. I’d heard that Microsoft were making it open source, and it’s happened. So head over to http://openlivewriter.org

This is my first post – configuration was the same as with the old WLW, and I’ve not spotted any differences yet apart from the shortcut icon and the name. Oh, and the complete absence of all those nice plugins, but the website says they are coming soon.
