Office Web Apps
Or is it Office Live Apps now...
Anyway: Office 2010, online. No apps to install. Works in the browser. Edit, share collaborate, etc. Word Excel, PPT, OneNote, and more. Also nativly integrates with Office itself, so the more powerful editing features can be accessed with a click if you have office 2010 installed. Any doc open in Office can be saved there directly, from within office too. Editing shows up live on the web in near real time. You can even host a presentation right through the site, share folders, ad more.
Its pretty slick, and free. No Office purchase required.
Since it's full yoffice 2010 native, it not only supprots simple office functions like google docs, it supports all the fancy business features as well as the facy looking user graphics options 2010 improved on.
Gawd, reading this sounds like i work for Microsoft.... (i do NOT).
I;d only reccomend purchasing office to people who need more than a simple word processor, or worjk in a business environment that heavily uses it. I prefer other lighter apps for ordinary stuff. Even $99 is too much to spend on office for simple things. However, this being free, not a bad deal...
