If you have a Windows Live ID (soon to be called “Microsoft Account”) you have Office Web Apps. Office Web Apps are a part of SkyDrive. Office Web Apps include Word, Excel, OneNote, and PowerPoint.
The Microsoft Office Next blog highlights some of the new features coming in the new Office Web Apps. The one that I am most exciting to use is Excel Forms for online surveys and forms for data capture. This has been one of the most requested features from the education community and the Office product team is listening and responding.
