You can "test drive" Microsoft's Office 2007 within your web browser. (Needless to say, if you want to try it out; you'll need to open the following link with IE).

They've been working on that and many other companies for many years. It is called Application Service Provider.

It is that the programs and your files are stored and access remotely from their servers. It is the 1st step in going towards the interactive web/tv/media enviroment. I think many people will gravitate towards that in the future. No more computers, just a thin client accessed to the internet.

Yep, it's goin' full circle again... back to "thin" clients...Just a bit more robust then their earlier versions (dang CSI Terminals!)


I don't mind it, it's not like you will be FORCED to have a "thin" Home PC... this is nice for businesses (but not too nice for techs....less will be needed... but will be easier to support)

Can ya tell I'm conficted?

Already tested it out (I actually have Office 2007 beta). It is slow and mostly only has additions to make it look pretty. I don't mind it though, its just the next step.
