Microsoft’s Google Docs and Spreadsheets

October 1st, 2007 by Jabez Gan [MVP]

With Software As A Service (SaaS), eg Google Docs getting more and more popular, Microsoft needs a way to counterattack Google’s offering, and to prevent users from moving to Google Docs/Spreadsheets.

As of Oct 1st, 07 onwards, Microsoft is rolling out Office Live Workspace beta.

Office Live Workspace is, in Microsoft’s words, “a new web-based feature of Microsoft Office which lets people access their documents online and share their work with others.” 

Office Live Workspace is not a hosted version of Microsoft Office. Instead, it is — like the rest of the Office Live family — an extension to the client-based version of desktop productivity software. Interestingly, Office Live Workspace isn’t just an extension to Microsoft Office 2007, but also third-party-developed office programs like OpenOffice, StarOffice and more, as well as Office XP.
