Office for the Web Sneak Peek

Microsoft Office Web Apps are now available for testing -- on an invitation-only basis. These are lightweight versions of Word, Excel, etc. that run on the Web. Like with Google Apps, documents can be shared across the Web.

The coolest part, for me, is a feature that lets me use my hard drive-based Office tools to save to the Web as easily as I save to my laptop. I hope this is the answer to my file synchronization issues. How do you synchronize between your various desktop and laptop computers? Give me the answers I desperately need at dbarney@redmondmag.com.

Meanwhile, I'd like lightweight versions of all these apps -- that I can install on my hard drive!
