Windows 7: Google apps are taking on Microsoft Office

Google apps are taking on Microsoft Office

The world domination of Google is continuing with a revamp of Google Apps, its online productivity suite, to make it more friendly to college students.

This is crazy like a fox on the part of Google.
Not only because Google Apps is slick but consider what the company is doing - it is getting college students used to computing in the "cloud" of the Internet and not having local versions of routine applications. And, what do college students do? They get out of college and get jobs in companies and even sometimes become CIOs and make decisions about buying expensive things like Microsoft Office. Brand loyalty is a huge deal and often is established in college.

This is actually an interesting concept.
I actually do not like the way Google Docs work, but at least they support ALL file formats (.docx can go die). While I am not into the cloud computing thing, this actually fits what I need perfectly right now with my business and one of my clients.
