Office 2007 is a beauty, even for a seasoned user like me.
You really do get what you pay for. And they way .net is looking we are going to have full office experience (hotmail is the closest thing I can think of in the wild, with spell checker) online... Think SharePoint (MOSS) 2007 with built-in nice editors. Even with free WSS...

Great article today(with poll) about state of office/web-office
tools. The interesting thing to note is that the audience is
primarily early-adopter crowd, who still seem to have a huge hurdle
in trying to get past the MS office suite.

I think its primarily 2 factors - feature set(includes navigation of
menu, buttons, shortcuts, macros etc) and also convenience(Word icon
is right there on your desktop and everyone knows how to use it).
IMHO, the best web-office tool is one that is going to be a
combination of desktop/online integration and zoho is one step closer
than google docs(Maybe MS Groove too but I never really could figure
that out).
