Will I ever purchase Microsoft Office again? This is a question I now ponder because these applications are available online. If I find myself somewhere away from my home computer I can go to live.com and log in to access not only my documents that are saved in a cloud (online server), but have the ability to use the actual microsoft office programs. The ease of use is simple due to most already having used these programs. The only downside is accessibility if the serve goes offline for any reason. One can save a hard copy or a backup but the programs may not respond as quickly as needed. The benefits outweight the negatives especially since it is free.
