Ad Supported Office 2010 Coming?

From all the trouble that you see Microsoft is going through to get Office 2010 to folks without having to make them pay (too much) money, you know that they’re starting to feel the heat from Google’s online Google Docs. The next move by Microsoft is that OEMs will be allowed to install Office 2010 starter on new Windows 7 computers, though it’s obviously a less functional version, and will also be ad-supported. We assume that Microsoft wants to get folks used to their own office suite so they won’t be able to accept other options like Google Docs or OpenOffice. How will this work out? Well, only time will tell, so stay tuned!
