A Minor Office Web Reboot

I'm not sure if Microsoft would have released its free Web versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint were it not for Google Apps, but I'm glad they did (and if I have to thank Google, I will).

These apps are reportedly in use by some 20 million people and now that they are available in a bunch more countries (such as Australia and Russia).

There are also a few tweaks, such as the ability to embed these apps in your Web site. This allows visitors to contribute content through Word and play with some models through Excel.

Any bright ideas as to what to do with these apps on your site? Let us all know at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
