I nearly did a back flip this morning when I was visiting MSN.co.uk and saw the page layout below. I thought we'd pushed out Office 2007 Web Edition too early or something ;-) But no, I was taken in by this rather clever advertisement for Office on our MSN website today. The ad lets you experience some of the new Office Ribbon features by customising your MSN home page - very cool. Congrats to the marketing team who sit on the floor below me for coming up with this one - you know who you are.
So is this what Office 2007 Web Edition might look like? Maybe. I would hazard a guess that it would be done in Silverlight and not Flash though.
Check out the advert which is only online for today: http://uk.msn.com/defaulto.aspx
They did this in the U.S. a few months ago. I liked it too. It was pretty neat advertising.
I'm waiting for the Silverlight version :-)
