    They arent late! People who used them before will use them now. Google and the like are still working hard to grab people, but MS no matter how late still has the upper hand. This only helps them further.

    It will probably force you to save your documents to windows live, not your desktop.

    I'm guessing this will be just an online version of Wordpad and watered down spreadsheets.

    Yep just started letting my users into OWA 2007. They love it. Exchange 2007 administration sucks though compared to 03. Good god did they make it difficult.

    Sort of. It seems as though Microsoft is ALWAYS late in some way any more when it comes to anything.. but you're right, they do have the upper hand as this is just giving people a way to continue (sort of) using office.

    Re: MS Office for free?

    Eh, I got Office 2007 Enterprise through work for just $10 because of their deal with M$ gives employees discounts on certain products. I can't imagine you'll get very good performance using it web-based but this is interesting...
