Looking Good Billy Ray – Feeling Good Louis!

That movie line has me chuckling as I reflect on the screenshot release buzz of Microsoft Office Live Workspace.  This just seems a lot to do about nothing.  Must be a slow news day for the threatened Google Docs appologists I’ve just read.

To the MS folks expecially the SBS crowd we will immediately see the SharePoint Services correlations; however, this is a SAAS play in the market that is being seen as a response to Google Docs.  My responce …”whatever **with a sarcastic vacant tone**  I’m not so sure this is the case but even if it is this won’t be how it will be used.  This is strictly a Microsoft only product through and through and is set solely for Microsoft Office documents.  Google free everything entitlement brats can play in their sandbox while businesses grow in a reliable and profitable marketplace.

What is interesting is that this is very cool and useful for SOHO types.  Take a looksy at the very interesting screenshots here at readwriteweb.com.  Also sign up for the beta here at microsoft.

Please take a look at the thumbnail below; this is an interesting portal to see for anyone in the small business market to view what the mothership is marketing to our space.
