"If I have Office desktop apps, then why would I use the Office Web Apps?" It’s a fair question. Office is an extremely powerful and efficient set of productivity tools. But Office Web Apps have changed the way I think about content and how I use the Office desktop apps. With Office 2010 and Office Web Apps I don't keep local versions of my files anymore. Because benefits of keeping files in SharePoint and SkyDrive are much greater. “One most obvious benefits of storing files on SharePoint is giving others an opportunity to collaborate on a project. Compared with other Office apps OneNote is not that broadly used. But its fantastic for collaborating. Before OneNote Web App came along, you could only use OneNote to collaborate with folks that also had OneNote installed. With web app you can create a notebook on SharePoint or SkyDrive (still to come) and anyone with a browser can add content and see what others’re doing. Changes are immediate just as they’re in OneNote desktop client. Also, folks can use either desktop client or web app to work in same notebook.”
