I was reading ComputerWorld's Preston Gralla's article on Microsoft Office whipping Google Docs. I just don't see it. While I agree that you can't compare the feature set of power tools that MS Office gives you compared to the utilitarian features from Google, I don't know if I would say the game is over quite yet.
Let me say from the outset that I actually prefer MS Office to Google Docs, hands down. For my part, I really do wish it was over. I don't like editing in Google Docs and for anything other than simple Word or very simple spreadsheets, it's just a web-based notepad.
So why does Google still have a chance? Simple. Most users are not power users. Like many software products, 80% of the users
only use 20% of the features. The rest are nice to have for the once a year time you may use them. What Google does really
well is make it easy to share documents for multiple people to use.
