I don't know about you, but I've been working on a collaborative workspace with a colleague of mine and I had to do all my work on Microsoft Visio on my Windows PC. He was on a Mac. He didn't have Visio and I did, so whenever I showed him my progress, he got frustrated since he couldn't actually, well, collaborate with me.
Isn't that the point of collaboration?
How did we get here?
Microsoft has been working hard at giving users Visio enriched experiences. In November, Visio Online Public Preview was given to a group of Office 365 users. That has turned into Visio Online for VSD file format and for users on Exchange Online, Outlook.com, and Hotmail.
