Whilst I have been happily reviewing the full version of 2010 as time permits for a while now I have little interest in the web based version. (A bit pointless at best corporate suicide at worst would be my take.)
I was therefore somewhat surprised when I recently got a request to participate in a feedback survey based on my experiences with the recently released tech preview of the imaginitivly named web apps.
I guess my subconscious must have been helping me out by ignoring the invite email. That or its another false positive casuality of my email spam filters.
I think they are still under NDA as are the server components (not yet released (I think?)) so I won’t ask what others think of the technology.
What I will ask though is do you see much value in webbified versions of MS Office. I know they already made the UI in the real office very clumsy so the web version wouldn’t look too bad, but I’m still struggling to see the value.
How will the web apps increase MS revenue?
