ThinkFree has recently added significant features to its innovative online solution. ThinkFree Office Online offers functionality similar to that of Microsoft Office via a free online service. While already intriguing, the PDF relevance was introduced with the latest update, which adds support for PDF output and the German language.
In part, the free service’s purpose will be to promote the commercial ThinkFree Office 3 Server Edition product, which will be a similar tool available for corporate licensing ($97.50 USD per user, with a 100-user minimum) as of Q1, 2006. ThinkFree already offers a desktop version of this software for individual users. It is known as ThinkFree Office 3, and is a Java-based application available for Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
