  • Microsoft Office 3.0 was the first version of Office for Windows and was released in 1993.Office 4.0 and 4.3 followed in 1994. Office 4.0 contained Word 6.0, Excel 5.0 and PowerPoint 4.0. Word 6.0 of course followed on from Word 2.0, so good to see that we’ve always been good at getting the numbers right…Office 95 – the first copy of Office that was 32-bitOffice 97 – a major milestone release – it included the red and green squiggley underlines for spelling and grammar checking.As we move through the different versions of Office, we also added new Applications and services.SharePoint joined us in 2001, became part of the Office system in 2003.Exchange 4.0 launched in 1996 (We had Microsoft Mail 3.5 before that)Visio joined the Office family in 2000, OneNote in 2003 and Groove in 2007.We have OfficeOnline one of the most visited websites in the world and more recently we’ve had OfficeLive Workspace as a way to extend Office into the cloud to store and share documents.All of that is simply a way of saying that Productivity is part of Microsoft’s DNA, we’ve been doing it a long time, it’s changed a lot and Office 14 is the next step in the evolution.We have performance point server 2007.
  • Real time co-authoring scenarios are different for Office Web Apps:For Word and PowerPoint documents, use the Office 2010 client applications for co-authoring, and be sure that no one is editing the document at the same time in Word Web App or PowerPoint Web App.For Excel workbooks, use the Excel Web App for co-authoring and be sure that no one is editing the document at the same time in the Excel client. For OneNote notebooks, you can use either OneNote 2010 or OneNote Web App for co-authoring.
  • How Does Word Web App Get Better With Silverlight?Faster load performance, since typically fewer bytes need to be downloaded before showing the document. Improved text fidelity at 100% zoom. This includes better text spacing and rendering. Greatly improved text fidelity at other zoom levels not 100%. Text will respect settings set in cleartype tuner, so you’re able to determine how much (if any) cleartype you’d like to see. The cleartype tuner is available on the web for older versions of Windows, and is included in Windows 7. Improved accuracy of hit highlighting in Find. PowerPoint Web App Gets Better With Silverlight TooThere are some automatic benefits to having Silverlight installed when running the PowerPoint Web App. For example, animations smooth out a bit, and the slide will scale with the browser window size. However Silverlight is not required for rendering or animation.If you’d like to get the benefits mentioned above when using the Office Web Apps, install Silverlight. If you’d prefer not to install Silverlight the Office Web Apps will still work well in the browser you choose to use - allowing you to work anywhere, no matter what machine setup you happen to find.
