Live mesh + Office 2010 real time on two computers?


I as a lot of people have the 1 laptop 1 desktop with wanting to have everything on both problem.

Thing is though if you for example have the same word document open on both computers, edit on one it won't update to the other even if the underlying file is synced but if you want to work on the other computer you would have to re open the word document to see any changes.

I am wondering if anyone knows if in word 2010 you can see changes when the underlying file is updated as in word 2007 you can't?

You can do it with Office Web Apps - Microsoft Office as far as I know, or a SharePoint Server -type setup. Anything that'll cache two separate copies in real time and manage changes across both copies so each user can see the latest and still have their own set of undo's, etc.

I run a business out of my apartment. For over a year I've been using Mesh to sync files, Office Live to share/store them, and Logmein free for remote desktop connections. I would use the built in mesh client more often but it doesn't have enough options for manipulating the color settings for...
