Does Microsoft offer anything in terms of online storage, something similar to Google Docs?

I'm thinking of just keeping a few essential files on the "cloud", so I'll need as little as 50MB.

Is there a Microsoft Office Online?

Windows Live Skydrive is probably what you're after. 25GB storage with a web-based interface. Slightly more than 50Mb than you want, but free to anybody with a hotmail/msn account.

JL: Office Live is closing and it's being replaced by SkyDrive. One of my Office Live accounts has already been migrated. – paradroid Oct 19 '10 at 13:26
@Jason, Will the web based office editor still be available in SkyDrive? – JL01 Oct 19 '10 at 21:41
@JL01: Yes. The Office Web Apps are actually part of SkyDrive and never were part of Office Live. That Office Live page just redirects to SkyDrive, as they are closing it down. There are also Office Web Apps in SharePoint and Facebook Docs www.docs.com. – paradroid Oct 19 '10 at 22:28

You could also use Dropbox.

It's better to use SkyDrive for this, as Office 2010 has support for SkyDrive built-in. You can open and save documents directly to SkyDrive. – paradroid Oct 19 '10 at 13:28
