Microsoft has been experimenting with various low-cost/no-cost to the

Nothing to do with office suite quality, and everything to do with
trying to convert Joe Sixpack into thinking that software for a service

Snag is they are not going to get the margins that way and they will
effectively destroy their own cash cow. Its a classic problem.
