The Register is reporting that Microsoft is preparing web-based versions of it’s popular Office software.
From the article: ‘Microsoft said features of its Office Live Workspace would include allowing users to upload more than 1,000 documents to free personal websites.
There will also be an option for documents to be shared in a password-protected environment.
For anyone who doesn’t have Office installed, features will be restricted via a read-only browser, although users will still have the ability to comment on the document.
The vendor sought to give the beta program a healthy lick of corporate spin, saying ”Online’ services are for organisations with more advanced IT needs where power and flexibility are critical.’ Other apps under the program include Exchange and Sharepoint.’
