    This looks like fantastic stuff.  (Sadly the organisation I am currently attached to has only just upgraded to Office XP so al I can do for now is play ...)

    Hi Ian,

    You don't need Office 2007 to use Office Live.  You get some cool integration of features like two way sync with Outlook Calendar and Task items, but you can use Office Live stand alone too...

    What's the best way to create a web form in Office Live?  Is there something like an InfoPath Forms Server or Office Forms Server in Office Live?  I just watched the video and see that my question is answered there.  Is there a more in-depth tutorial about how to make that Northwind Inn form work?
