Microsoft hints at releasing web-based OfficeBy Justin Mann
TechSpot is celebrating its 25th anniversary. TechSpot means tech analysis and advice you can trust.
Doubtless feeling somewhat intimidated by companies like Google toying with the idea, Microsoft is making a few hints that it may consider doing web-based office suites. Fitting in better with a "software as a subscription" model that MS wants to move towards, they may be looking to have ad-based "Free" suites for people to use via the web(doubtlessly requiring IE7). Being the undisputed champion of desktop office software to begin with, they have a huge leg up in getting people to try it out. Google definitely has their work cut out for them if that is what they want to do.
But hey - if it's free, who can complain?
