I have to say that it absolutely amuses me to the nth degree to see that in order to be even a little bit relevant, MS has had to resort to giving away its flagship office suite for free.

Re: Microsoft on Androids
@Sunita I agree with you. I think if windows have released the package they must have kept these problems in mind. I believe the package must not be fully loaded or have full loads which might not consume that much RAM. In my opinion we have to wait and see what this release has in store for us. What do you say.

@Angelfuego - Word is in fact available for iPad, but it doesn't have all of the gusto of the full-blown version. It is adequate for the types of things you would expect to do on the go...

Re: Microsoft on Androids
Now this is good news. The install package for android devices may be huge so the Office might take up much RAM.

Microsoft on Androids
Wow, I love that Word, Excel, and PowerPoint has expanded its capabilities to Androids. This is great news!! It is about time! Now I really can work on the go with a very compact device. I doubt it would be good for my eye sight though. Last I heard, you still can't use Word on an iPAD. Is that true? I heard Pages is the closest thing comparable to it.
