Re: WTF?

Microsoft have handled this in a cack-handed way but it looks like they're exploring the concept of Office 365 for free (with ads). This business model certainly seems to work for Google, Facebook, etc.

The target markets they mentioned are presumably places where few users are actually paying for the current product.
