Just call Xerox - they've been doing that for years.  MS is playing
catch-up, as usual, but ignorance will believe they "invented" it.

So, go and use this potential!
from the mx site:
PressPass: How do you see real-time-communications evolving?
Singh Pall: Real-time communications is a capability that Microsoft and the
industry are going to focus on for at least the next 10 years. If you look
at the focus of productivity in enterprise applications to date, the work
has been mostly about bringing data together, and it is about having people
individually create, access, modify and archive data. As we move forward,
there is an increasing need for people to work together on the different
aspects of data and documents. By this, I mean several people authoring,
editing and reviewing a document at the same time. All of these activities
require a framework in which multiple people, sitting in different
locations, can communicate and collaborate together in a seamless way.
Real-time communications is the technology that makes that possible.

Wasn't very pleased with it :\ Also don't like the fact that this editor
doesn't seem to be aware of the existence of Jabber/XMPP :\

The world is full of scribblers who only regurgitate the pap supplied by the
wintel world press office. Latest is watching Intel's wireless ads, you'd
think this was new...I've been unwired on my Mac for years.
