Office 2010 & Web Apps Due in June

Browser-based Office Web Apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, will be free to consumers via Windows Live

Microsoft Developer

Office Web Apps, Microsoft's answer to Google Apps, are supposed to be out sometime in June along with Office 2010. Microsoft, which confirmed the rumored timing, has yet to price the half-dozen versions of Office 2010. The browser-based Office Web Apps, including Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, will be free to consumers via Windows Live. Businesses with volume subscriptions to Office will also get free access to the dumbed-down weblets, which they will be able to host internally if they want to. That alternative is viewed as more secure than going to Google's servers to use Google Apps. Meanwhile, SQL Server 2008 R2 is due May 6.
