The end of Office install do you think?
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.

Heck, I never even really knew what it was until now.

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?
I don't wanna know ... that's why I'm here. :D

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! :)

Mate, if you have a printer connected to your machine in any capacity it should print to it. I like the fact that you can "Open in ..".

From a browser tab you can transpose the data onto the real Office program at a click of a button ... it's pimp:thumbsup:

Even on a remote Skydrive connection, aem?

I haven't browsed this enough yet but, let me cheat and just tell me me how I can do it. :D

Let's say I have a computer connected at the office to an Oce plotter and I'm at home. I desire to send a few prints that way so my associate, who has the job of opening the office while I stay home in my pajamas, can hand them off to the client (already printed).

Is that possible with Skydrive?

I don't know if you can do it with your Skydive from home unless that plotter is connected to your home machine in some way (and you can print stuff from your home to your work plotter, but you can share your file with your associate and he can use his Skydive to print.

Well, I guess I could just as easily email it to him, as well.

Still, thanks, aem! :)

I'm gonna delve into this Skydrive stuff quite a bit more. :D

I use Skydrive every day and have done since it launched some years ago for my small business run from home, and i also store all my photo's on skydrive just by uploading them from within Live Photo Gallery.
It a good product which gives you 25 gigs of online storage.

Can't use a pc without it now.
