OpenOffice Online

By Dave

So it looks like OpenOffice, the popular Microsoft Office replacement is working on a web version, much like Google Documents. Ars Technica had a chance to give it a run through and found it to be decent, but not perfect.

Here is a snippet from their article:

With this beta offering of a desktop suite, however, it’s clear that Ulteo’s initial public milestone was simply to get OpenOffice.org working in a web browser. Users seeking the collaborative or document-sharing features of competitors like Google Docs or even Microsoft’s Office Live Workspace should keep on walking. While Online OpenOffice.org offers 1GB of online storage space for all your documents, nary a sharing or collaborative feature is in sight.

I use OpenOffice on all of my computers, from Linux to Windows to Mac OS. I am not a huge fan of online applications, and I doubt OpenOffice will be able to change that, but I am glad they are looking at participating in the ever increasing push to put everything in the cloud space we call the Internet.
