    Just found some pretty cool news on cnet:

    Microsoft has now made an online version of Microsoft Office. I haven't tried it myself yet, but I think it is free, but you need an account at Windows Live first before you can use it.

    Hmmm... they've been talking about this for awhile now. Actually, I think its been out for the enterprise user, but now its available for free to live users. Thats pretty nice, give us users one less reason to go spending 150-500$ on Office, though of course its going to be limited I'm sure...

    Yeah, I figure it will be useful anytime I need to use Word on an OS that does not have it installed or an OS it wont work on (such as Ubuntu).
    The online version works on Firefox across all major OSes: Windows, Linux, and Mac OS X.
    It also works on IE and Safari on the OSes that you can run them on.
