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)
  • Exchange
  • SharePoint
  • 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.
