Google Apps Gmail now uses the Gmail storage counter

Some Google Apps subscribers may notice that their quota in Gmail is significantly larger these days. Google has started using the counter found on your personal Gmail account for Google Apps too. Right now, basic users have 3.5GB of storage at their disposal (until now it was stuck at 2GB), and it will noticeably grow as the Gmail counter is moving a lot faster these days.

I am glad to see this happening now, as 2GB isn't enough for business users -- especially ones that deal with things like contracts and are constantly sending and receiving attachments. In order to lock in some of these Outlook people (because those users don't provide any revenue potential), more storage may be an option. What do you think? Will increasing storage for Google Apps Basic help Google get people using the Gmail client rather than Outlook?
