Microsoft Office Live Small Business and Microsoft Office Live Workspace
I saw this at a presentation at BETT and have just registered to have a poke around. It's the Ofice applications on the net - access from anywhere with controlled file sharing and no need to have Office installed on whatever device you use to access your workspace.
Has anyone had any experience of it? It's free... which worries me with M$ as there has to be a catch.
I believe the catch is you must be tied into a subscription of sorts per user. When I spoke with them at BETT, they said that it being on the net is a good thing, but having say 50 people trying to use it, winds up being slow and useless.
The subscription fee IF I remember rightly is something like £189.99 per person per year...
Microsoft say its free only because after the subscription you dont have to pay anything.
It's not good for terrorist activity or if you don't want the US/UK govenment reading your documents

It may end up embedding advertising
