Microsoft has announced that the Service Pack 2 for Office 2007 would be out next spring, but I can’t find more surprises like the ribbon in first 2007. When I was interested in the recent frenzy of gorgeous Open Office 3.0, Microsoft PDC 2008 (Professional Developers Conference) showed us something new: Office 14 for Web.
I can’t tell this new Web friendly Office will catch the future or not. We see, it’s really cool, with the immigration to online office trends like Google Docs. Definitely Microsoft wants to capture the newly Web market as Google does, and it’s not a bad idea to start up testing the future software as service. Does this work? We’ll see how Google makes and wait for the answer.
