I think the only thing new here is the nice office.com app launching page. These applications have been available in SkyDrive / OneDrive for some time, being improved regularly. If you didn't have a hotmail / msn / live / outlook or SkyDrive / OneDrive account, you might never know these were available, so it's nice to see that they're making it more discoverable.

I really like how OneDrive integrates nicely with both Office 2013 and Windows 8.1, which might benefit those who don't own or subscribe to MS Office.

LOL, it used to be that Google Docs was the alternative to Microsoft Office. Now it's Microsoft Office Online is the alternative to Google Docs.

Oh, how times change...

People got what they paid for. If they thought the FREE Google Docs sucked then they most certainly could have PAID for Office on their desktop.

Now maybe MS will make their Office iPhone app more useful.

Just a note that this version of Outlook is not the Outlook you would expect or use in MS Office. It is Outlook.com, a totally different program that does not share compatibilities with MS Outlook from in MS Office..

Google Docs is still miles better than Office Online. GDocs has many full office features that Office Online does not support.

Offine Online however has much better document viewing and support. It also works very well with OneDrive. If you are a 365 subscriber, you can also get access to a "Virtual" version of FULL OFFICE to use on public computers.
