Waiting for Microsoft Office Live

Posted by David Hunter at 8:32 PM ET.

LiveSide, a community site for Microsoft Windows Live, Xbox Live, and Office Live enthusiasts, stirred up press interest with a posting this week that Office Live “pre-beta” invitations have already been sent out:

Promising “a free Web site with your own domain name, free hosting, online business applications, e-mail and more” along with easy access to “your company e-mail, customer and project information from almost any Internet-connected computer” this is one Live service that is definitely not targeted at the home consumer.

You can still sign up for the beta program at the Office Live homepage though as always, not every applicant will be offered a place on the beta.

The beta is open to US residents only, and requires Windows XP and Microsoft Office 2000 or higher.

Later in the week another poster further roiled the waters with the observation that the “beta should be released any day now” and that features of Microsoft Office Small Business Accounting and Windows Live Custom Domains would be part of the package as well.

Office Live was announced with Windows Live
on Nov. 1 of last year.
