Were you dying to have a look at the Office Web Apps. Well the wait is now over. Microsoft has launched the technical preview of Office Web Apps to selected Windows Live users. The Technical preview includes Word, Excel and PowerPoint Web Apps. Initially the functionality is modest as the Office Web Apps team calls it. But don’t worry as the Office Web Apps team promises to increase the functionality with the passage of time.
The technical preview offers a high-fidelity view in browser for Word, Excel and PowerPoint files. Lucky Invitees have the option to edit PowerPoint and Excel files if they desire to do so.

It might sound like a joke but believe me this is what has been revealed lately. Normally a product faces competition and finds competitor in products that offer similar functionality, rather than finding a competitor in itself. Well the case is entirely different and unique for Microsoft Office as one of its competitor happens to be Microsoft Office itself or to be more precise, an older version of Office: Office 2003.
Recently TechRepublic conducted a poll which revealed this interesting matter. According to that poll, 58% of business still use Office 2003, this is quite interesting considering the fact that Office 2007 was introduced quite a while ago.
24% of business organizations go for Office 2007 whereas 15% of business seem to have a liking for Office XP or even an earlier version . This stats once again highlights the wide acceptance of the Office suit from Microsoft. 3% of people said they haven’t use Microsoft Office at all. Jason Hiner, TechRepublic editor-in-chief regarded this interesting fact as an IT joke. His words were:
One of the jokes in the IT industry is that the biggest competition for Microsoft Office is previous versions of Microsoft Office.
Considering these results another question arise which Microsoft itself would also be asking and pondering about. The question is: Will majority of the businesses consider moving or upgrading to Microsoft Office 2010?. There is no clear answer to it. However one might argue that in the light of the statistics we shared with you, the scenario seems highly unlikely especially when you consider the current economical situation.
But here is another interesting point, Office 2010 will be bringing with the web versions of Office applications namely Word,Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. The Web apps are sure to attract a lot of businesses for reasons (light weight, accesible from anywhere)well known and understood.
What will happen eventually, no one knows. With the passage of time, it will become more clear. However one thing is for sure, Microsoft would dearly like to see people going for Office 2010.

Did u think it is the end of the post. Well think again. Microsoft also sent out invitations for the “Click to Run” technical preview program. Simply said it is a streaming version of the latest upcoming Office suite from Microsoft. The program needs to be executed just once. During the execution it streams the bits of Microsoft Office to the user’s PC. The streaming version consists of Word, Excel, PowerPointm Outlook and OneNote. This is how Microsoft explains it
The program provides a first look at the future of Internet application deployment. It delivers the products rapidly to the computer via streaming over the Internet. The following Office 2010 desktop applications are included: Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook and OneNote
Very recently, Google Translate capabilities were increased. Google added the option to the Google Translate which will allow it to translate the uploaded documents as well. Previously what you were allowed to do is to either copy the text in Google Translate, or you could upload the document online and paste its address in order to translate it.
However the bad side to it is that it converts your document to HTML and then it translates the HTML file. I say bad because translating into HTML does not preserve the document layout and the embedded images as well.
The files that you can upload include
- Word Documents
- PowerPoint Presentations
- PDF files
- HTML files
- Text files
Considering the layout andthe images problem, is the recent added capability what the user were looking for.
Previously, we guys showed you the screenshots of Office 2010. This time around we have got more news for you related to Office 2010. Bill Veghte, Microsoft Senior Vice President in a presentation to TechEd invitees, announced that Microsoft will be releasing Technical Preview of Office 2010 in July. Attendees of the TechEd got themselves automatically into the list of individuals to get hold of the technical preview once it becomes available.
Office 2010 comes out as a modification to the desktop version. Besides this Microsoft also has plans of releasing Web based versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote. As we told you previously, Office 2010 will be available in both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Office 2010 will run on Windows 7, Vista and XP SP3 (Good news for XP users).
The technical preview is sure to follow the Professional Plus tier and includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook, Access, Publisher and Accounting Express. OneNote, Groove and InfoPath are currently missing from this SKU, but that could change. Similarly Visio is not visible but a seperate preview version is expected to be available this July.
A few changes of cosmetic kind have been noted to Office 2010. The Office Button is no longer existent and is replaced with a bold colored tab that represents the Office component currently active, Word has dark blue, Excel has green, PowerPoint red and Outlook has a gold colored tab as visible on the packaging.
Just got this update. Office 2010′s twitter account has made an update in which it states
Office 2010 will include Twitter, Facebook, and other social networks integrated right into Word. That’s just a hint of what’s to come!
Cant wait for the technical preview to come out. That’s it for now. Have a good day.
