Microsoft's Office Web

Microsoft has plans to make a free Web version of Office which they plan to release in 2010 along with Office 2010. This Web-based application is Office Web and it will encompass lightweight Web browser versions of Excel, PowerPoint, Word and OneNote. It is geared toward the consumer, but as with pass innovations, will eventually be enterprise ready. When available for public use, Web Office will be accessible from Microsoft’s Windows Live portal via your browser. Documents will be stored on Microsoft’s SkyDrive service, a 25 GB of free storage and sharing files and photos, which is a component of Microsoft Windows Live strategy. SkyDrive makes them accessible from computers, mobile phones and browsers via the Internet while preserving the documents.

I pray this information is of help to you and as always, email me with your topics and let’s have a good time learning together!
