A Microsoft blog reiterated this week that the Web-based version of Office won't be tied to either Windows or Internet Explorer.

In a blog posting on its Channel 10 site, a Microsoft blogger noted that, owing to support of Firefox and Safari, the forthcoming Office Web Applications will run on Linux and the iPhone.

The blogger, Microsoft's Sarah Perez, also noted that Microsoft won't be mandating use of Silverlight, its rival to Adobe's Flash.

One minor clarification – Ina Fried notes later in her article that the corporate side of Office Web applications will be tied to SharePoint; the same is true for the non-corporate version, as Office Live Workspace and Office Live Small Business are also SharePoint-based.
