Robert was commenting on John Udell's post about using Word 2007 for blog posts:
Their heart is in the right place, though. There are hundreds of millions of Word users (I saw some in a Starbucks in Geneva, Switzerland, and I see them everytime I travel on planes). So, how do you get those people to see that they can post stuff right from Word into blog tools like WordPress?
Jon Udell will be there if they show up.
The problem is that Jon uses a language that most normal people don?t. He is writing for us, the geeks, the developers, the passionate computer users who know more than how to turn the thing on.
And if he?s talking to us, the geeks, I don?t think his message will fall on listening ears.

If you'd like to read John's full post on it, you can check it out here. Robert's point about John really missing the mark on the audience is bang on (sorry John). Way too techie for most Word users and us techies would rather have a root canal than use Word to post.
I've been using LW a lot lately (in fact for this very post). It isn't perfect, but I think it's pretty darn good.
