M$ offering free Office Online version V's Google Docs

[quote= http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2597860/Free-version-Microsoft-Office-easier-find.html]
For more than a year, Microsoft has offered a free version of its popular software suite Office. The only problem is, it was difficult to find.
That’s now changed as the Redmond, Washington-based tech giant recently rebranded the free version of Office Online easily available through a website. CBSnews.com reported.
The software includes  Word, Outlook, OneNote, PowerPoint, and Excel.
Quote
Microsoft previously called its Office free version Office Web Apps. The big problem with that is it used to be only available through its cloud storage service known as OneDrive, which used to be called SkyDrive.
One of the reasons Microsoft may have made the change is that some consumers were complaining they didn’t have a free version of Office that could compete with rival Google Docs.

Works a lot better than Office apps on my Windows Phone - one of the worst features of the latter....
