I like the interface and features that come built in with Wordpress (add-on's make it a lot better, as well), but the very fast and convenient way of publishing a quick news post via Live Writer is nice. For some, I'll use it. Others, I do need the added functionality of the actual Wordpress backend. But, I really love it and wouldn't want it to go away. I love the convenience of it. I've had several times when I've gone to publish a post and it times out or I lose an internet connection (especially when traveling!), having to not retype things is nice, too.
