Microsoft is feeling the heat from its main competition - Google Apps - and is now offering free stripped-down versions of Word, Excel and PowerPoint via web browser.  You can access these programs at You must login to view links.

.  Just login using your officelive username and password. 

I imagine these are the same versions found in Microsoft Works.  Like Google Apps, you can view, edit, and share these documents with password-protection, and store up to 5GB.

As of July 30, 2010, this is a new feature in Windows Live Hotmail.  You can now open, edit and save documents from MS Office (Excel, Word, etc.) through your Hotmail account.  MS is trying to compete with Google Docs so they created the ability to use Office programs withought having the Office Suite installed on your computer.  Documents you use or create are saved "in the cloud" on SkyDrive rather than on your computer.
