Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


[ Thanks to Christian for this link. ]

"ThinkFree Office is one of the newest entrants to the ASP market (Application Service Providers) for home and office users, offering an office environment no matter which operating system you are using at the time. ASP's tie the Internet in with applications to allow for an integrated "workspace" that will pretty much follow you anywhere you have access to the Internet and a browser. They're built to be an 'integrated' solution for those people who are constantly on the go, thin clients, and for those of us who are absolutely sick of the oversized hard-drive consuming office suites that end up being about a gig in size. ThinkFree includes ThinkFree Write (word processing) ThinkFree Calc (spreadsheet) and ThinkFree Show (presentations) with more being slated for the near future releases."

"We have tested the new ThinkFree Office in both Windows 98 and Linux (where it is still in Alpha release) and have found it to be fast, intelligent, and worth the download time. In Windows, it makes a shortcut to the application when you want to work offline and save files and documents locally, Linux apparently does not have the same functionality, at least not at this time."
