Beginning in mid-July we'll be offering an online version of Microsoft Office to subscribers. The Microsoft Equipt bundle includes Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote, plus OneCare and a handful of existing free Windows Live applications.
The software bundle, which also includes Windows Live OneCare computer security software, will be sold at nearly 700 Circuit City stores for $70 per year. Equipt can be installed on up to three computers, as can the traditional packaged version of Office Home and Student 2007.
Microsoft Equipt offers consumers Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007, giving them the latest versions of:
Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote for their personal and school projects.
Windows Live OneCare, the all-in-one security and PC management service.
Windows Live tools, such as Windows Live Mail, Windows Live Messenger and Windows Live Photo Gallery so they can connect and share with people they care about most.
Office Live Workspace, a new service from Microsoft that makes it easy to save documents to a dedicated online Workspace and share them with friends and classmates.
Anytime a new version of Office or Windows Live OneCare is released, Microsoft Equipt customers will get the version upgrades as part of their subscriptions.
