First Look: Office 14 for Web

Wouldn't it be cool if all the Office applications worked online, cross-browser from anywhere with AJAX and/or Silverlight? Or maybe even from your cellphone? What would be even better is if they had real time collaboration, integrating the rich client with the web clients. Well, wish no more because all of the above is going to be a part of the next Office Suite.

Want to see how it works? Check out this visit from Antoine Leblond, Senior VP of Office Productivity Apps. We'll show you a little about how this works, why we're doing it, and demo working on documents together with a co-worker.

      Anyway am not trying to look in to the bad side. I love to see the office application that i use everyday in the office becoming one of the tools to use online.  Hope to see if not all but most of the Microsoft Office application here. it is really exiting.

      Think i am the first to comment.

      AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!! . I spent 2-4 h every night in last  4 months maing silverlight document editor. I drow tre roulers manualy, coded every single  letter behavior and integrated control into framework throught System.Reflection so that user can add functionalty without coding throught admin wizard by connecting silverlight famework objects properties. And now my work goes to trash because Microsoft is about to realise this. Genaraly I like microsoft products, but sometimes they kill me.

      Man what did you expect?   There will probably be a Visual Studio Web too.  Try investing effort in something that does not align with with the MS product line or you'll just be doing advanced R&D for them.

      Noooooooooo.  Office 2007 is bad enough!  The complexity is getting ridiculous.  Now everything is going to have to happen remotely?  This is going to remove all control from the home user.  You'll have to be on-line to do anything and you won't have any choice.  The interface will be dumbed down and expert power users will be forced to kludge along with newbies, just like Office 2007.

      Also, I hate IE8.  Slow and slow and slow and clumsy.  We'll be forced to use it though.

      Keep it up Microsoft.  Keep it up.  We'll all go to OpenOffice eventually.  I'm selling my MS stock.

      I am very interested in this feature.
      I want to know if the mail merge word (publipostage) will be integrated with the word online version.
      Can someone give me information?
      Thanks Wink
