Office Live, Microsoft’s entry into the web-based office application space, went beta today.
Check out some of the system requirements for certain features of this “web-based” service:
- To use the Edit in Datasheet feature within the Business Applications and Shared Sites areas requires Microsoft Office 2003.
- To export to Business Contact Manager requires Microsoft Office 2003, Microsoft Office XP, or Microsoft Office 2000.
- To import contacts from Microsoft Office Outlook requires Microsoft Office 2003 or Microsoft Office XP.
- To link contacts to Microsoft Office Outlook requires Microsoft Office 2003.
And of course you must use IE. I never thought I’d see a web app suite that has more system requirements than a desktop app, but I guess I should never underestimate Microsoft.
