Did Google OS spoil Microsoft's Office Live surprise?

The world hasn't come to grasp from the Google's Chrome OS announcement, the alleged answer came from Microsoft. According to the rumor, Microsoft is now eating sour grapes because Google overshadowed a special announcement on next Monday, July 13.
According to the rumor, on next Monday, Microsoft will not only officially release Windows 7 to members of their partner networks, such as MSDN, TechNet and of course, OEM/ODM vendors - but the company is allegedly preparing "something special".
There are several potential products that are being spread, but the most possible one is the announcement of "Computer 2010": combination of Windows 7 operating system and the new web based version of Office; Office Live or Office 2010 Live should include Word, Excel, Power Point and One Note. The goal is to delivered the software suite to the users through Office Live program. The financing version is quite interesting - one way is subscribing to it, which perfectly fits Microsoft's current Small Business program with "software leasing" and its infamous marketing pitch: "Get Microsoft Windows and Office for the price smaller than a single cup of coffee".
Second way is the most interesting of them all, and quite dangerous for present Google line-up: free Office suite, supported by watching ads.
Well, we'll just have to wait till Monday.
Google, Office, Microsoft, Word, Excel, Power Point, One Note, Gazelle, Microsoft Office, Microsoft Corporation, Office Live, Office Web, 2010
