I need to give users the ability of opening and editing a word document from the server.  

What is the easiest implementation?

Thanks...

Just an after thought, but not even MS approve of using office this way
http://www.textcontrol.com/en_US/blog/archive/20100709/

I would give a direct link to the MS article but for some obscure reason the firewall is blocking it?
This is not to say that I haven't done the exact same thing myself, just that it is not recommended.

Using docx or openxml... would it be possible to use something like a kendo editor and create the document from the rich text, or would there be formatting issues?

this is a asp.net mvc application, so I don't think that textcontrol would work nicely....
