    Only if they gave me some sort of non-browser version. I know that kind of defeats the purpose, but I still like having the standalone windows, rather than browser tabs.
    Maybe if they had some sort of front-end application, sort of like remote desktop, but for Office?

    There has to be a gui so browser is never going to die. This is as front end as it can get. I think MS is on a good thing here, eliminating the need to install Office can have alot of benefits one being piracy. Question is, how do they make money from licensing?

    I'll use it once they get off their arse and make the official Android app for it. They're taking way too long.

    Now that I think about it, I have received a few emails from friends wherein I had to retrieve a pic from there but I've only recently got a Windows Live ID.

    What will you do without me eh?

    When i first heard about it, i didn't think much about it cos i didn't know how it will look like, but after testing it i quite like it.

    Btw, did you know you can print directly to your local printers?

    No, I didn't know that. However, do you mean if I have a plotter assigned to Skydrive I could print to it, in the office, from home?

    Thanks, aem!
