12255950 story Microsoft's Free, Online Version of Office To Premiere This Week 264 Posted by timothy on Sunday May 09, 2010 @03:42PM from the file-formats-matter dept. walterbyrd writes "Microsoft will offer an online version of Office 2010 for free. I have to wonder, will this remain free indefinitely? Or is Microsoft just trying to firmly establish its OOXML standard, then go back to business as usual?" Probably a harder sell after Google's acquisition of DocVerse.
