1. Blogger had a spell checker.
2. Dave/Radio had a better way for me to quickly find a site to host my weblogs so I would still be using Radio (and/or support the FrontPage extensions that my ASP hosted web site uses). I was a Radio customer for less than 5 minutes because it isn't obvious how I expose my postings to a publicly accessible website.
During and after the installation, Radio appears to be a solution local to my laptop. An installation Wizard (DHTML, of course) would be helpful here. My goal in downloading and wanting to use Radio was to create a public weblog. The Radio installation came up short. In my very rapid searching to find a "Radio hosting site", I ended up on Blogger and now have the http://parallelspace.blogspot.com weblog you're reading now for $12/year.
...but I go on ...what I (and many Wintel users) want and need is support for FrontPage Server Extentions. Radio needs a better, more complete installation experience that fully enables me with a public weblog.
Thank you Dave Winer and Jon Udell for painlessly educating me on weblogs at lunch today ...as well as your desire to better understand where Groove Networks decentralized business collaboration platform fits into plethora of communications and collaboration solutions.
