Digital Inspiration has exclusive screenshots of Live Documents

Summary: Live Documents, the Flex-based Office 2007 competitor that got a lot of attention last week has finally let out some screenshots to Amit Agarwal over at Digital Inspiration. I won't post them here, I'll let you head over there, but I won't lie; they're going to look VERY familiar.

Digital Inspiration has exclusive screenshots of Live DocumentsLive Documents, the Flex-based Office 2007 competitor that got a lot of attention last week has finally let out some screenshots to Amit Agarwal over at Digital Inspiration. I won't post them here, I'll let you head over there, but I won't lie; they're going to look VERY familiar. I'm going to be getting a demo of Live Documents hopefully before the end of the year. They've clearly got a very compelling (and familiar) UI. It will be very interesting to see if they captured the full Office 2007 experience.

Anyone know if there are copyright issues with that user interface?

    According to the above, you may use the ribbon royaltyfree etc. as long as you're not competing with office....

    Looks like they could be heading for some trouble...

    • Fluent UI License

      From the screen shots it looks like that they have a very close implementation of the Fluent UI however it's not exactly the same.

      We also licensed and implemented the Fluent UI in Flex, and i can confirm that the license doesn't allow the creation of tools which would compete with the existing Microsoft Office Tools.

      So i am also curious, how will they get through this ..
