    I'd love to see a similiar interview with someone who heads Office Live.  Where Microsoft Online/BPOS has focused on enterprise customers...I think Microsoft efforts to capture the small business market with Office Live Small Business (OLSB) is equally important.

     

    Speaking as a small business owner, of all the Office 2010 capabilities coming out...the one that really stands out is the ability to publish/share MS Access databases and forms.  If Microsoft can offer a low cost way to publish/share MS Access via Office Live, I think it would be a great source for future Microsoft Online growth.
