It’s official the Windows Live Writer team closed their blog Writer Zone. Since there was no new posting since January 2009 it isn’t such a big surprise. Here the last posting from the official Windows Live Writer blog Writer Zone:

Did you notice? We haven’t posted anything new here for awhile. We’ve officially stopped maintaining this blog.

    All the product teams have been moving their blogs to WindowsTeamBlog over the last 12-16 months.

But I do get the sense there is more marketing influence/review then when the blogs existed in isolation. To be expected I guess.
