The article reports on the initiatives of Microsoft Corp. in dealing with the free online office applications launched by its competitors. The company has thrown a full-court press at the open office movement, which wants to set standards for document formats. Predictably, Microsoft has lobbied hard to win a prominent role for its own technology in the standards. Responding to the evolution of on-demand software, Microsoft has also launched Microsoft Live!, a set of online applications that are still limited, for example, to providing tools to help small companies design web sites.
