Google should do a version of Office based on the OOo/LibO code base and embed ads and search links, make it available freely and brand it Google Office. Given their brand strength and marketing, that would probably do more to frighten MS than anything we can do. Slightly surprised they haven't already done it.
Interesting concept. But I think they are investing a lot on the "Cloud" with the Chrome Book laptops that investing time on an offline suite doesn't make much sense... In the same line of thought: Google Docs is fine in the "Developed" countries where working in the "Cloud" is a reality. This is not so for more than 2/3 of the world's population (http://www.internetworldstats.com/stats.htm) I do believe that currently LibreOffice is the leading alternative to MS Office (but would love to see some numbers :) ) -- View this message in context: http://nabble.documentfoundation.org/Is-Microsoft-getting-worried-about-free-Office-suites-tp3541925p3542033.html Sent from the Discuss mailing list archive at Nabble.com. -- Unsubscribe instructions: E-mail to email@example.com Problems? http://www.libreoffice.org/get-help/mailing-lists/how-to-unsubscribe/ Posting guidelines + more: http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Netiquette List archive: http://listarchives.documentfoundation.org/www/discuss/ All messages sent to this list will be publicly archived and cannot be deleted
