Microsoft The Microsoft empire is built upon two pillars: the Windows operating system, and Microsoft Office. Windows 7 made its way unto the scene last year, and now it's time to work on the other pillar. Today, Microsoft officially launched Microsoft Office 2010 and SharePoint 2010. Regular customers will be able to purchase the new versions next month, starting at 119 USD.

I don't understand why any linux user wouldn't be excited about using a web based version of office. It lets you use your OS of choice and a productivity application that is best in class.


Well, there is the little matter of your data being given to Microsoft. Aside from that though, will it work on Linux? I'm actually asking, as Microsoft isn't exactly known for programming things in a cross-browser way, and typically they tie their web products to IE somehow.
