Microsoft today announced at its Worldwide Partner Conference in New Orleans about the new version of Microsoft Office 2010. In response to Google Apps, Microsoft is going to roll out web browser versions of Word, PowerPoint, Excel and OneNote for free.
Microsoft and free? Yes, and I am excited. Hopefully, I won’t need to install the bulky Office application in my netbook anymore.
It is told that all these web-based versions of these products will be based in the cloud and will have fewer features than their desktop cousins. Only featuring some basic tools to edit and change documents these tools will surely help in some last minute modification from one’s handheld devices.
