Despite my love of all things free and web2.0-ish... I'm giving the new Microsoft Office Live bits and bobs a try and am typing this blog entry using the free Windows Live Writer. Free sign up. Integration with Microsoft Office 2007. The ability to manage and store your documents online. Able to share documents with others in a Google Docs-esque way.
What's not to like?
Well, I'm going to give it a go and see if my Google-addiction may be reigned in a tad. Google Docs just aren't quite there with regards functionality for me... but they did offer collaborative working and online storage of documents. Microsoft Office had the functionality I wanted... but no easy collaborative working and no online storage of documents. Well, the latter has just changed, so let's see... Windows Live Writer is certainly prettier than Google's publish from Docs function. Am I going to be a slave to Microsoft once more? Have they finally woken up to web2.0??
