Windows 7 Enterprise

If I want to use my office docs somewhere other than work or home, I have a USB key on my keyring.

It is up to you if you wish to disclose your information on the net, but it is in my philosophy to have a more open and transparent community.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I personally don't like the way things are going to rely on online presence. I think that part of technology is taking things too far.
I like my Office on my own computer. I own more than one license so have it on my laptop's as well, and I just copy files on my USB if I want them on another computer.

Kind of like in games, like Silent Hunter V, where you have to have an internet connection to play..I think its stupid. There are still lots of places that have internet down for periods of time etc. When too many things rely on it, it makes things bad

And with personal stuff, I really don't trust having my things on a server somewhere. Would rather have them on my own computer
Its bad enough with banks etc. and the security they have to keep in order to keep peoples files secure. There will always be hackers out there, no matter what.

I hope they don't just force people into this. That would really suck.

Total is $18,000 for one company that is a drop in the bucket for most, especially when you look at payroll being 45.5 million a month.
Not every company has a 45.5M monthly payroll and some of these smaller companies have in-house Exchange solutions.

If a version of office goes "only online" then fine, but you cannot expect the smaller companies to take up that expense of these archives.

OWA has taken some great strides to become an "Outlook look-a-like" but as far as I know, you cannot use the Sharepoint features in OWA. I don't doubt this is planned, but it's not going to happen until Exchange 17 at my BEST guess. Still don't see companies with in-house solutions branch out for the cloud to use a copy of Office. ESPECIALLY, when they have a sales force that flies half the year and needs to get work done on the plane.
Ok, I work with some very small companies as well. 1 Exchange server, 250 users, $85,000 a month payroll. Still a small price at $18,000. :)
