I didn't actually read the article until now.
Seems they will use it to expand office- so pay for office to get it???
then the first comment in the article:
"Another large corporation microsoft will flush down the toilet.
They bought Danger/sidekick and shut down the servers, then just dumped everybody that depended on the danger/sidekick because microsofts tech people had no idea how they worked.
Wait for 1 year and microsoft will shut down Skype's servers like they did Danger
Microsoft, AT&T, BofA, are the big bullies and care less about people's needs."
hope there is a good alternative on the horizon....
