Windows Live Writer and Windows Server 2008

Many months ago when I discovered Windows Server 2008 with it's Hyper-V, stability, etc, I made the switch to that as the operating system on my primary workstation. However, the one thing I've really been missing is Windows Live Writer: for whatever, reason it is not able to install on Windows Server 2008. So, for the time being, I continued blogging from my Vista machine that was still tasked with being my media center.

Recently I discovered that you can install the Technical Preview of Live Writer on Windows Server 2008. Then I tried just overwriting the Writer directory from my Vista machine to Server 2008, and it all works fine! So this is my first official blog from Windows Server 2008.
