Can someone please advise the best open source blogging software I can use to install on .net platform?

I have a dedicate windows server where I have hosted my asp.net based website. I want to know if there is any free blogging package I can use to install there?

Hi DominoG

Does that mean that If I want to apply my own styles to BlogEngine I can?

As I understand from this webcast as long as I have HMTL layout and stylesheet to go along with I can use it in this application.  Do you think its correct?

I can find few onine and free themes but I want to apply customised one to go in sync with my website. Please advise

Thanks

Looks like you can create a fully customised theme.  So yes as long as you're comfortable working in CSS/HTML you're good to go.

As it's open source it's not going to cost you anything other than a little time to give it a go.
