Ink Blogging

I have been playing with Windows Live Writer, the "Ink Blog" plugin for Tablet PC and my Addesso CyberTablet. I have been unable to use my tablet effectively in Windows XP because Windows XP "Professional" lacks the ability to understand a pen input device natively, but Vista Business on the other hand, knows how to handle it well. I think this is the first time I have truely felt like Vista did anything better than XP. All hope isn’t lost, Vista does have some good traits. My only complaint is that there are way too many layers of software at work to make this work. Windows Vista for driver control, the Adesso driver for input recognition, "InkBlog" for capturing the ink, and WLW for making the InkBlog data useful.
