Microsoft is announcing that they too are going to be launching an online version of their Office product. This is being seen as a direct target of google’s cloud “Documents” product, which though only registering about 5% of the market, is growing.
The new product from Microsoft will be available through their Windows Live portal, that’s hotmail for those who still use it.
The word is that with google soon be lauching their operating system, Chrome OS, in direct competition to Microsoft’s strangle hold of Windows, Microsoft are going after google’s “Document” products!
On the face of it I wouldn’t be too worried if I was google…
However, the major coup is that they are going to be partnering with Facebook to offer this as an app there.
On second thoughts, google should worry!
