I’ve lived in the cloud for two days solid, and it’s 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 it’s 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 I’ve 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 it’s 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 aren’t up to scratch yet. You can’t 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 it’s finally released, because the main alternative to the downloadable Windows Live Messenger is the MSN Web Messenger. It’s horrendously outdated, slow, and doesn’t perform half as well as the next Live-branded version will be. More at; http://blogs.zdnet.com/igeneration/?p=1002
