Drupal, Blogging clients, & Linux

From: Rod-Lists 
On my defunct site I played with the Blogging API and drivel.
Some how my nice formatted text got mangled when I uploaded it.
I don't know if it was drivels fault or the API.
Never tried blogging clients on other OS's so I don't know how they worked.

Any other druplers played the blogging api and blog clients?
