  • who will host it? (Score:5, Interesting)

    Will this be something you host or that they host. I would like it if I could host a open office cloud server on my own metal. If it is simply hosted on their server farm I may as well use google docs or desktop based open/libre office(.org). Also will it feature plug-ins? A cryptography plug-in that makes use of client side double public key encryption with collaborative editing would be great. For that matter will it have collaborative editing, or a git like document versioning for multiple editors? If so will it allow collaborative work between the cloud version a desktop version? This could be very useful or just something else I never use.

Make it right before you make it faster.
