If you have a Windows Live ID with an Irish address, you can now register at www.officelive.com/workspace and start using the service.
You can use the service to store, edit and share Office documents and other information “in the cloud” and access them from virtually any web browser (including Firefox and Safari as well as IE). The service is being regularly upgraded but it is already very powerful, with tools to allow people to collaborate with friends to share information for example organising sports teams, social events as well as conventional business-related tasks and information. It has been well received by the press in the US where it has been available for a few months:
You can also download a small add-on to Office (for 2007, 2003 and XP) after registration which allows you to open and save documents to your Office Live Workspace directly from within Office applications. Below are some screenshots of the new service and a snapshot of the Office menu with the new Office Live options installed.
