Michael Robertson, who founded MP3.com, is launching a series of PC web-based "standard desktop" applications using AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript And XML) technology which he announces on his blog AjaxLaunch.com.

The first to be released is AjaxWrite (only runs on FireFox browser) which can read and write Microsoft Word documents.

Robertson says "For 90 percent of the people in the world, the need to buy Microsoft Word just vanished."
