MercuryNews.com | 03/10/2006 | With word processing acquistion, Google edges onto Microsoft turf
I thought this was coming. I see no reason why Google won’t have a web version of all the Microsoft Office apps within the next year or so. We won’t need a desktop OS or Office Suite when Google offers all the functionality we need online. (And for free!)
It’s ridiculous to pay Microsoft as much software when you buy a new computer than you pay for the hardware.
I like this Google move a lot.
