Looking for a WordPress client

I'm the kind of guy that prefers to have a "real" desktop-side client for the majority of the web apps he uses, so looking for a desktop-side WordPress client is nothing new to me.

I have several choices included in the Ubuntu 10.04 repositories:

  • BloGTK

  • Lekhonee

  • Drivel

  • gnome-blog

Unfortunately, Drivel crashes with a segfault, BlogGTK complains about the Python gtkhtml2 library being missing, and Lekhonee requires python-gtkhtml2 be installed, which is not included in the Lucid Lynx repos for some reason :( gnome-blog isn't featureful enough for my needs, so I guess I'll just use WordPress' web UI for now.
