LinuxPlanet: ThinkFree Office: Will Operating Systems Become Irrelevant?

[ Thanks to Kevin

“ThinkFree is on the frontlines fighting the war for online
office applications, and while the company is winning battles, it
is going to be a long war. Unfortunately, ThinkFree has to fight on
many fronts, so we will have to wait and see if ThinkFree turns out
to be General Patton or Don Quixote….”

“ThinkFree’s initial suite of applications include Filer, Write,
Calc, and Show. In this section we take a look at the general
look-and-feel of the suite as well as the individual components.
The version we tested has some unimplemented features but updates
were being provided even as the review was in progress. In terms of
deficiencies, I concentrated on features that were not targeted for
the final release….”

Overall, the ThinkFree office applications are very
functional and quite suitable to new users that have not learned to
utilize more advanced features found in other office software
products.
They are definitely more than sufficient if you find
a PC with an Internet connection and need access to a consistent
set of office applications–just hope that there is a wide pipe for
the initial download.”
