    "Microsoft this week pulled the curtain off of Microsoft Office 2010, ... which will also contain a free option in Office Web, a cloud-based version..."
    ....
    "When Office Web goes live, it will offer stripped-down versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote in the cloud."

    This sounds like a good app for the Palm Pre. Who should I/we email to lobby for this? Or maybe the Pre will get a 3rd party set of apps that do the same thing except Pre-optimized (I do realize that Microsoft's WinMob is a relatively stale).

    I bet it requires Silverlight. I doubt the Pre will ever run Silverlight.

    Google Docs are the most likely winners in the virtual realm, has anyone tried them on the pre?

    The URL:

    /QUOTE]

    By "virtual realm" do you mean "the cloud"?

    My guess is that Micosoft is chasing Google Docs for mobile and virtual document management.

    In google docs, you can upload your Microsoft docs, spreadsheets, etc... and manipulate them with a web based program ... and now, it is made for mobile systems.

    I haven't tried it on the pre yet, but sounds like a winner.

    spreadsheet works, but not quite as nicely as the word processor. the word processor is da bomb.

    I'm having trouble using the "word processor." It seems much more like a "word viewer." Is that not true? Am I missing something?
