re: Microsoft Office For iPad Faces Many Challenges
Crippled was a poor choice of words on my part. I was trying to convey a state where iPad Office lacks features that Surface Office has either because of genuine Windows advantage or at least something Microsoft's marketing perspective fabricates.
For instance, if folks truly want iPad Office, they might want to do more printing. Unless there's an iOS-compatible printing infrastructure, it's going to be easier to achieve that on Windows Office. Likewise, any organization with a heavy investment in SharePoint may find iPad Office not as capable as Windows Office. Embedding things between Office apps may be a no show on iPad Office whereas that will be a given on Windows Office. Finally, Windows Office will offer an AD security context that's likely impossible with iPad Office. Combined with SharePoint challenges, that might the collaboration folks expect from desktop Windows Office a no show on iPad Office.
