After having been a happy ecto user I’ve decided to try out Qumana. Not because I’m unhappy with ecto on a Mac. I am, however, unhappy with having recommended ecto to PC users only to discover that it is nothing like the Mac version. In fact, I’m surprised it shares the same name as the Mac program, as they are nothing a like.
There are certain things I prefer about the Mac version of ecto – the Technorati tag list, the preview function, how it handles trackbacks, Amazon links and images. But Qumana has it over ecto in terms of the software similarities on PC & Mac.
I spend too much time helping other people begin blogging and need cross platform tools that I can trust. Qumana appears to be one of them. (I will, however, continue to use ecto for my own blog.)
