I am curious to see what good (and bad) things the Web App version of Office will hold. Obviously, not all features will be included.
I’m not sure what to think. I feel like Microsoft products are thoroughly ingrained in the business world, and we’re not moving away from them anytime soon. This is OK by me. For all their problems, they tend to be predictable and generally reliable.
Check out a bit more rundown on the upcoming testing here.
In the above link, one commenter alleged that Office Web would be useful if you had to show a presentation but didn’t have Office (and did have Internet). I might point out that MS already covered that base by providing free viewer software for Office. I think they’re really trying to move production work with Office into a browser. Not just for viewing – they want people to work in the browser. We’ll see how it catches on.
