Is this a panacea for the thin client computing world? A web site that offers a fully functional Word Processor compatible with Microsoft Word that runs solely in a browser? How about a web site that offers a fully functional presentation program that you can create flowcharts and slides from a web browser. The best part? The price..it is FREE! The caveat... you must use Mozilla Firefox to run the applications...sorry NO MICROSOFT APPLICATIONS ALLOWED. Panacea? ABSOLUTELY!
The sites are the brainchild of Michael Robertson of MP3.com and Lindows..er Linspire fame. I really admire this guys gumption and innovation. He has his hands in many internet technologies all for the good of mankind and promoting open source.
