Microsoft Office to kill Google Docs?

msofficevsgoogledocs

Last few weeks have been very interesting in the technology industry. It seems like the whole industry is at war. Now, the latest has come from Microsoft’s arsenal.

The events in chronological order:

  1. Microsoft surprised Google with it’s search(decision) engine Bing.
  2. Google retaliates with announcement of Chrome OS.
  3. Now, Microsoft is planning to provide online version of its highest selling software (MS Office) for free. Oops! Did I said free? Yes I did, it will be available online for free!

I think this move from Microsoft has the potential to kill Google Docs/Zoho which were getting popular because of Microsoft’s inability to offer online document service. Lets see how Google is going to counter this move. I have never seen Microsoft this aggressive to counter each and every move of Google. Lets see what future has in for us the consumers. 🙂
