Sneak peek: Microsoft Office Live Workspace

October 18, 2007

Webpro News has a sneak peek at Microsoft Office Live Workspace available on their site. The screenshots look great to me and it has a typically Microsoft Office interface which will surely work in their favour.

It will let you store documents online, view them, share them and make use of collaboration tools. However, at this stage I see no evidence of being able to edit them in the browser and it appears to purely be an online complement to the desktop applications.

Surely being able to edit and create documents without the need for access to MS Office on a PC has to come next, along with tools to synchronise the documents both ways. Otherwise this is purely a glorified storage area and won’t compete with other online office 2.0 offerings.
