Microsoft has announced today, during the PDC 2008 A new version Office that is lighter and will be accessible via a web browser, which has called Web Applications for Office .
It consists of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, this version of Office will create and edit (individual or a group) documents online, just as options as Google Docs or Zoho < >.
It’s somewhat comical to see that a little over a week, Steve Ballmer was saying that many people “
Google Docs test, but in reality no one is using “.
Maybe we should have been more careful when we read what was said by Ballmer, as it was giving us a clear indication that his company would launch a product like this … but why would you thrown garbage?.
In the end, the idea behind
Web Applications for Office , is to allow users of this office suite can be accessed from anywhere in your document, and have an experience “similar”.
There is nothing new this suggests that
Microsoft , although whether it will be interesting to see how their big clients are relevant to this “novelty”, with the possible consequences that will then focus on options for Google and Zoho who … clearly will benefit, if they adapt to the needs of these potential consumers.
