    it would be nice to embed a word file from skydrive seamlessly into a blog or a webpage
    and it would be great to turn off the download feature and make it read-only. so I can present my documents but people can not simply download it and change things and upload it on their page from their skydrive

    Meh, still no separate pages in Word. Even Google Docs finally got it, but not Word…

    But does it work with the HP Touchpad browser? That’s my only/biggest complaint about OWA.
