Great news from Microsoft:

starting today, people can create and edit Office content on iPhones, iPads, and soon, Android tablets using Office apps without an Office 365 subscription.

It boils down to "free Office for personal use". That's a biggie.

Our vision of Office everywhere wouldn’t be complete without Windows, so I’m pleased to confirm that new, touch-optimized Office apps for Windows 10 are in the works and we’ll have more to share soon.

And come Windows 10, Microsoft will finally have a touch-friendly Office on Windows Tablets.

Wouldn't it be easy to add support for plain old "open in" to the new iOS apps - if Microsoft only wanted?
