"As we've talked about in previous articles, online word
processors can provide certain advantages as alternatives to
Microsoft Word over non-Web-enabled counterparts like
OpenOffice.org and Sun's StarOffice.
"To sum up quite quickly, because online word processors are
browser-based, they can often operate easily on just about any PC
running just about any operating system (OS), including Linux.
Generally but with some exceptions, documents can be stored either
online or on your own machine, and they can be shared
collaboratively regardless of which OS your friends and colleagues
"AjaxWrite drew a lot of fanfare on its initial rollout way back
in 2006. The other offerings we'll explore in today's article are
newer, and lean very strongly in collaborative directions.
Writeboard is one of the easiest-to-use collaborative writing and
editing environments you're likely to find anywhere."
