Office Web Apps: The beginning of the end for Microsoft?
InfoWorld / Randall C. Kennedy
So when Microsoft makes noise about embracing the cloud, then delivers something designed to preserve the status quo, we feel compelled to call them on it. OWA is not the capable, feature-complete Web implementation the company led us to believe it was developing. Rather, it’s a poor attempt at placating its critics (not to mention its grumpy shareholders) by paying lip service to cloud computing ideals and principles while at the same time trying to co-opt the new as a means to prop up the old.
