Office Live Workspace beta launches in Australia

The Office Live Workspace Beta is now available in Australia. This is great news for those wanting to extend their Office experience online. Its great for storing Office documents online where you can access them and preview them from any computer (Office doesnt need to be installed). You can also share documents and work on documents together in real time using Microsoft SharedView. You can also save directly from your Office applications to your workspace.

    Would be great to offer some basic editing functionality. I mean, I can preview MS office documents in Yahoo mail too. If Flickr and Picasa can offer on-the-fly image editing, then I think it’s a good idea to allow users to edit documents.

    I have been using Office live Workspace now for a while, finding it excellent.  The Australian launch is great.  My staff and clients are finding the concept and ease of use a real benefit to them.  Certainly adding to the on-line division of our business.
