Remember the days, when MS Office was a must requirement for any Good office job. I salute to Microsoft for this whole Office idea. It gave some more time to government officials for gossiping about politics. It was one of the coolest research of that era.
Office suite (but not Microsoft Office) moved online. Kudos to some great work by Google Docs, Zoho, Thinkfree, now you can create your Document, Spread Sheet and Presentation online and can share them with your friends. You along with your friends can simultaneously work on a document or a presentation. This is termed as ‘collaboration’.
Actually this whole concept is known as SAAS (Software As A Service) because these SAAS vendors will let you use their software at some nice price. You use them without even installing them in your machine so there is no initial requirement of your processor or disk space to run this software which actually is a service.
I use Google Docs and Zoho. Both tools are ultimate and easy to use.
There is also a news of Microsoft entering into this field with its Online MS Office. Adobe has also bought Buzzword which in an online Document creation utility. Apple has also entered in this market with its iBook which presently works for Apple users only.
So, is anyone left?? All biggies are competing here just to provide you an ultimate experience with their online office suite products.
Are you listening?? :P
