A iPad application (Free) that provides access to anyone with a Windows 7 desktop and Microsoft Office 2010 for a tablet, but it is probably too good to be true. As he wrote on Thursday, Microsoft said that the “Office OnLive” service flow to a cloud-hosted Windows Installation iPad tablets and Android is not properly licensed. On Live has not commented, but the company will probably rework the structure of the service.
This does not mean Microsoft rules prohibit such services, but the service is properly licensed is unlikely to be free. A company called Nivio explains how he plans to offer Windows and Office on the iPhone and other devices in accordance with applicable license from Microsoft. To make it interesting for Nivio, the service will cost $ 5 for every ten hours (only $ 2 for students).
Nivio Rackspace hosting service and pay for a Microsoft Service Provider License Agreement (SPLA), leaving to deliver a “Windows 7-like experience” using Windows Server 2008 R2, which shares the same code base, Sachin Dev Duggal Nivio President explained in a blog post on Thursday. Nivio offers a desktop cloud services with Windows Server 2008 R2 Remote Desktop, which can be done without violating the rules of Microsoft. Nivio has to test the law agreement in place with Microsoft, said a recent press Duggal Nivio, which includes a quote from a spokesperson for Microsoft. (Press release is not generally associated with citations issued, unless the service is a legitimate objective.)
Nivio service promises access Windows “on your Mac, PC, iPhone, Android tablet or mobile device,” or any compatible browser HTML5. support for the iPhone and the iPad is “very soon”, said the product page. Whether you come in the form of access to the application or the browser is not specified. Interested users can pre-register for the Beta, but it seems there is a waiting list. We recorded last night, and received a message that says: “I e-mail when your account is ready and waiting for you to use.”
