  Sabeer Bhatia sold Hotmail to Microsoft in 1997 for around $400 million. After selling Hotmail, Sabeer tried <a target="_blank" href="//labnol.blogspot.com/2006/03/hotmale-launches-web-comments-blog.html" rel="noopener noreferrer">new</a> <a target="_blank" href="//labnol.blogspot.com/2004/12/sabeer-bhatia-is-back-with-new-ideas.html" rel="noopener noreferrer">ventures</a> but none of them were very successful.</p> 
  
  <p>
    Now Sabeer has decided to challenge the cash cow (Microsoft Office) of the same company that made him a millionaire.

  <p>
    Today he has launched Office Live Documents &#8211; an online+offline Office suite of programs similar to Word, Excel and PowerPoint.</td> </tr> </table>

      Like Zoho Office and Google Docs, Live Documents lets you create, edit and share Office documents in the web browser.
    </p>
    
    <p>
      All your edits are automatically synchronized with all other copies of the documents.
    </p>
    
    <p>
      And if you own a copy of Microsoft Office, you can download a Live Documents toolbar that makes it easy to upload documents from your Office programs to the Live Documents cloud (very similar to <a href="//www.labnol.org/internet/office/microsoft-office-live-workspace-file-hosting/1773/">Office Live Workspace</a>).
    </p>
    
    <p>
      Live Documents is done in Flex so should work on any system that has the Flash plug-in. Overall, Live Docs sounds like a good concept but they are definitely up against some heavyweights notably Google and Microsoft.
