Only six months after public availability, the beta release of Microsoft Office Live Workspace has reached the one million customer sign-up milestone. Office Live Workspace beta was among the first entries in the new wave of online services in Microsoft’s software plus services vision previewed last fall.
Office Live Workspace beta has grown since its introduction six months ago. Since launch of the beta, approximately 20 new features have been added to the service, such as multi-file upload, Firefox support, and an Activity Panel.
Among the one million customers is the Australian National Curling Team, who are fans of Office Live Workspace beta. The team used to rely on e-mail to work together and share ideas but chose to use Office Live Workspace to have a central place to manage training logs, team photos and athlete biographies. They’ll use Workspace to coordinate overseas travel three times over the course of the next nine weeks. A video that shows the team in action and how they use Office Live Workspace beta [is now available].
