Microsoft to introduce Office Web applications
During the Professional Developers Conference (PDC 2008) Microsoft has announced that the next version of Microsoft Office will include Office Web applications that will enable people to access, create, edit, share and collaborate on Office documents across multiple devices.

“Microsoft supports diversity in work styles and understands that customers want choice and flexibility in how and where they work,” said Stephen Elop, president of the Microsoft Business Division. “Microsoft is in a unique position to meet that customer need. Office enables people to view, edit, share information and collaborate on documents on the desktop, phone and in the browser, and do so in a consistent and familiar way.”

Office Web applications for Microsoft Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote will be available to individuals through Office Live, and to businesses though a hosted subscription and existing volume licensing programs.

This new offering will be compatible with familiar Web browsers from Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari. Microsoft will release a private Technical Preview of Office Web applications later this year.

Also during the developers' conference the company demonstrated many capabilities of the Live Services platform, including how developers can build rich applications and experiences that can be extended to all users of the company’s Windows Live services such as Windows Live Hotmail and Windows Live Messenger.

The company demonstrated many aspects of Live Services including Live Mesh. Live Mesh is a service for synchronizing any user’s documents, media, files and application data across multiple PCs and devices, and is available as an open beta at http://www.mesh.com for Windows and Windows Mobile. At PDC2008, those same synchronization capabilities of Live Mesh have for the first time been opened to developers through a Technology Preview of the Live Framework, enabling Web developers to extend their Web applications to a world of Windows-based PCs and extending their Web applications offline.
