Microsoft axes paid versions of Office Live Small Business | All about Microsoft | ZDNet.com

A timely Office Live reality check

Office Live Small Business is the set of Web-based services, targeted at companies with 10 employees or fewer, that are designed to complement Microsoft Office. Since Microsoft rolled out the first version of these services in October 2006, they were available in three different flavors: a free, entry-level product (Office Live Small Business Basics); a mid-range offering (Office Live Small Business Essentials) for $19.95 per month; and a high-end service (Office Live Small Business Premium) for $39.95 per month.

Now there will be one combined, free offering, known as Office Live Small Business, that will supplant these three SKUs. Microsoft will offer add-on services to this free SKU for a monthly subscription fee, however.
