The Torygraph is saying toodle-pip to Microsoft Office and hello to the cloud, according to reports.

"Over the three years, there was a five-to-one difference with Google in terms of the investment we would be making. And the Microsoft deal included only the software licences and not the hardware or support that would have to come with it," the Telegraph Media Group's CIO is quoted as saying in an IT Pro story.

Especially as we're talking a bunch of journalists here, being able to access stuff from any web node is a good thing, clearly. They trialled it, they're happy with the security etc and they're going ahead with 1,400 people. Which is quite a lot.

With Microsoft reporting lacklustre earnings (though Google's not done too stunningly either), and with Office being MS's biggest cash-cow, this sort of thing can't be good news for Redmond.
