Who da thunkit? Google Office just isn’t a valid alternative to MS-Office; I know, I tried to make the switch from MS-Office to Google and it is what it was designed to be – minimalistic. LibreOffice and OpenOffice are great alternatives but the general business user is less comfortable trying something they don’t know after using something that has worked well for so many years (MS-Office).
Now, though, while not loved by IT, everyone with an iPad or iPhone will want to try this….not sure what pricing is and not sure how big a compatibility issue there will be with Excel or Powerpoint (Word typically not a big deal) but this will give renewed life to those frustrated with Microsoft’s desktop OS licensing and costs (VDA? Restrictions on cloud multi-tenancy?).
