LXer: The Office-free life: Surviving on free Web-based services alone

Published at LXer:

For Microsoft Corp., 2005 was the year the big bad Web came calling. Again. A decade after Microsoft counterattacked to beat Netscape in the Web browser wars, the company finds itself surrounded yet again by competitors looking to leverage the Internet to gain an edge over the industry titan. Web-based software and services are emerging for everything from checking e-mail to collaborating on business tasks. [ED: Sounds interesting? The web instead of being a captive of MS? Well not quite: due to some valid reservations about privacy it may end a bit differently than you expected - HC] i found some benefits to having my work available on Web-based systems, and there are some I will probably use again. But, for now at least, Microsoft is right - these challengers will complement, not replace, my Microsoft Office software.
