    This is sort of what I expected to see in the first version of Microsoft Office Live. I think they should take “Small Business” out of the loop, and name it something else, considering that it deals primarily with configuring a web presence. “Workspaces” is a good start, and I like how they’ve labeled it “an extension to Office”, but I am kind of surprised that they haven’t integrated support with messenger, and people will still be more inclined to use SharePoint or Groove for the time being, if not the new Google Apps.

    On another note: I noticed the folks at Microsoft always begin their sentence with “so”. Is this a Seattle thing?

    Scoble: Can you give me an example?
    Microsoftie: So… I’m going to give you an example.

    LOL

    Microsoft always seem to copy ideas from other companies and come up with a better product , MSoffice live is a copy of google docs api , similar to windows vista is a copy of tiger/leapord os ,hence microsoft products should not be copyrighted.
