Iíve lived in the cloud for two days solid, and itís not as easy as I thought it would be. I traded in my applications for web alternatives - such as MSN Web Messenger, Google Docs, Acrobat.com and Windows Live Mail.
Although itís been useful getting to know the online applications, it should never be a substitute for offline applications where possible. Google Docs is good, great in fact, and Iíve been really pleased with what it can offer me, but Word 2007 just has that much needed leverage you need when dealing with complicated documents.I enjoyed using Google Docs for reading presentations, but not so great for editing with. I think itís fair to say, the cloud applications are great as a technological middle-man; using it to make quick edits, holding online in storage for local printing and uploading a few notes for later editing.
Both Acrobat.com and Google Docs support all major filetypes - .ppt, .doc., .pdf, .xls and even the newer XML based filetypes. But the standards just arenít up to scratch yet. You canít import or export files exactly as they were, which means you end up spending time editing the documents before you print.
And roll on Windows Live Web Messenger, once itís finally released, because the main alternative to the downloadable Windows Live Messenger is the MSN Web Messenger. Itís horrendously outdated, slow, and doesnít perform half as well as the next Live-branded version will be. More at; http://blogs.zdnet.com/igeneration/?p=1002
