  • Google is serious about full featured online apps that enable colaboration.

    Microsoft is still trying to protect the twin cash cows.

    So, Google is free to go after this united with all of their energy, nothing held back.

    Meanwhile, Micosoft fights the internal battles and does a half hearted job with online apps.
