Microsoft Office Moves into Cloud, Desktops Dead
I saw an ad on LinkedIn “We’re all in.” (cloud) today. Microsoft started offering the following applications in the cloud:
- Office (Microsoft Office Live Meeting, Communications Online, Web Apps including Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and OneNote)
- Dynamics CRM
- SQLServer (Microsoft SQL Azure)
- Windows (Windows Azure, Windows Live ID)
If Microsoft moves its Office into the cloud, that means desktops are dead.
