Windows 7: R.I.P. Microsoft Office.

R.I.P. Microsoft Office.

Quote:
What we know as Microsoft Office is quickly coming to an end. As more and more applications hit the cloud and become universally available, compatible, and always-on, the client side version of Microsoft Office is bound to come to an early end. Although Office will live on for many more years on older computers, diehard fans, and stubborn upgraders, Microsoft Office’s online presence will become increasingly more important and embraced by the software giant.

Cloud based software may reduce the level of piracy but, as I posted over at The Eight Forums I'm still unsure how I feel about having all my data available on line.

I am not sure businesses will want their data available on line, either.

no doubt they will still keep their offline software for a long time...

until it is possible to make a web act act completely like a native app (task bars, multiple windows act the same), I doubt that clientside processing will ever go away.

I agree with those who doubt the cloud. Sorry, it just isn't going to happen for me. I know they (who ever they are) will tell you the cloud is safe. My answer to that is B.S. The cloud is still a computer system, hence, once it becomes popular enough the bad people will be looking at a way to bring it down, and again, sorry, albeit I have no doubt they will accomplish just that.

Smoke makes clouds. I think this guy is far off base. Reminds me the 80's when Unix was supposed to be taking over the world.

Sorry, the cloud will never work for me. What if I can't get a connection, for whatever reason? I'm screwed if I don't have the files and applications on my machine. That would never work for me.
