Windows Live Writer Beta Japanese version appeared, I actually tried using it

Since the beginning of the English version earlier it was a reputation as "updating blogs will be much easier"Windows Live WriterFinally, finally the Japanese version appeared. It is possible to edit and create articles as if they were watching like a word. You can update blogs that fully utilize photos, maps, tags, insert and edit tables, format content and hyperlinks. Moreover, since you can temporarily save the contents to be posted, it is possible to write halfway and write a continuation after once being absent and waiting for time again. In addition to Windows Live space, it is also available for other blog services that support Metaweblog API or RSD.

So, I actually tried using it.
