"I have to admit though, even I didn't realise they would move so quickly to an 'everything hosted' suite of products. "

quickly? Has everyone forgotten that they were supposed to have this working back in 2000 or so?

"The bCentral small business portal, launched last fall, will soon offer Microsoft Office Online. "

a very good comment.

Quickly? Feh. I got a job offer in the web office group back in early 1998. Brian McDonald, the guy who founded the company that created the product that eventually became MS Project, was the SVP of the group. I turned them down, but with lots of reservations. I thought Brian was brilliant. We decided that we preferred Silicon Valley to the NorthWest. In retrospect, I'm damn glad I did turn them down, they shut the group down two years later and Brian left MS. From my conversations with him, they had made a lot of progress before they canned the whole thing.
