Microsoft now offers Office 365 for free through its nonprofits program – The Next Web.

 

I wonder how successful this will be. Honestly, I hope that it does help out nonprofits, but really, I think that the main issue is not the immediacy of being able to create (and edit) “office” documents but being able to work on those that were created by others or by oneself in the past. And it is also very important how an application presents itself–as a source of ad hoc adjustment, as a vehicle for ecosystem development, as an interface for those billions who have not been raised using qwerty and writing commands.

And how well will this offer work with the large embrace of mobile devices?
