We’ve launched a portal on TechNet to help IT professionals get started with the Office Web Apps. This should prove particularly useful for people who are currently trying out the beta.
Nick Simons Program Manager, Office Web Apps
First of all Kudos to the Office Web Apps team! :)
What is the ETA on Word and OneNote Web App for Live Space? It is much easier to the demo the apps to my colleagues if they are available in Live Space.
I have demoed the Excel and PPT Web App, and so far everyone has been very impressed :) In fact I am using Microsoft Excel Web App from Live Space on my Linux machine, as I write this comment :)
@Saqib Ali, OneNote Web App and Word Web App editing will start rolling out in the first half of 2010. Right now I can’t provide a more precise date as the details surrounding full availability are still being worked out.
@ Nick Simons: Thanks for the quick response.
It would really be helpful to have a Road Map of the Office Web Apps broken down by features.
Could you get the microsoft owrd web app up and fully runing for editing soon so that i can start using it.
Could you enable righ clicking for a file just like the Google Doc. I think it more convenient.
Also, can the beta (Web Apps) be extended to support 32-bit?
I want to undersatnd the licensing requirements better. As far as I can see if my client buys OEM or Retail box for Office 2010 then they can use the web apps on windows Live with no problem. However, if they have SBS2008 and upgrade to Sharepoint Foundation, they will not be able to install the Web Apps unless in VL status. How does this work? What happens to the user in that organization with the OEM version of office 2010?
Will the Office Web Apps product team provide any technical support for books that will be published? I'm working on two books and I haven't had any luck getting someone on the team to talk to me. I'd really appreciate any guidance someone could provide. I've been using the beta for a while and really like what it offers. Thanks.
With Office Web Apps, I have the option of using SkyDrive and/or Office Live Workspace, right? Or is SkyDrive only for storing my docs securely and Office Live Workspace is a place for me to share docs with other people I want to collaborate with?
@Salib Ali, we don't have a publicly available document that breaks down Office Web Apps by feature. Once the products are publicly available we will have more marketing material available that will undoubtedly include this sort of break down.
@Robbpatt, the licensing for Office Web Apps is a bit complicated and still being worked out. Licenses to install the Office Web App on SharePoint are based on volume licenses of Office. SharePoint does not come with licenses for Office Web Apps. However, the best thing to do is discuss options with you Microsoft sales rep.
@Kenyon Brown, we provide documentation and technical support through various avenues such as http://office.com and http://technet.microsoft.com. You will find links to some of that information here: blogs.msdn.com/.../9971860.aspx.
Also, all Office Web Apps functionality will be available through SkyDrive including both storage and the ability to share with others.
I don't know if this is the appropriate place to post this question, if not I'd appreciate it if someone directs me to the proper place.
My question is it possible to connect a spreadsheet hosted on skydrive to a local cube file also hosted on skydrive so that you would be able to interact with the cube thru the Excel Web App.
@Noel External data is currently not supported in Excel Web App on SkyDrive. To use external data with Excel Web App (or Excel Services) you need to use them in your own SharePoint environment.
Note however that workbooks that have external data connections in them will still load on SkyDrive, but will only display the cached values stored in the workbook.
When I try to start up Microsoft outlook I get the warning message Cannot open your default e-mail folder then the details of the file name how do I fix this
