Notes

I've been hearing for years how the online world is a threat to Microsoft's dominion of the office world. Now I'm starting to believe it. Tonight I tried out a small online office suite that features three of the office tools I use at work. The applications are MS Word, MS Excel, and MS PowerPoint. This website uses large and powerful java applets to completely simulate these applications while you are logged on to their site. They offer a free account with 30mb of online file space and you can access any files on your local machine or the internet as well. The service is ad supported in the same way that Google uses the Google Adsense ads. I didn't even see the ads while I was trying it out, but I thought I should tell you.

 

I tried out two applications while I was there. It took several minutes for the java applets to download and the applications fired up. They did indeed look and act just like MS Office applications. The next time I go there the apps will load quicker because the java applets are still stored in the Application Data folder on my PC. This service could be a life saver if you are on the road and can't bring the office with you.
