Don't Upgrade To Microsoft Office 2010 Says Google

Google has highlighted the strategic advantages of using Google Docs over Microsoft Office 2010.

In an attempt to dissuade customers from investing in the latest version of Microsoft's Office suite, Google's official Enterprise blog shows the advantages Google Docs holds over its rival.

Making no effort to disguise its agenda against Microsoft's Office 2010, Google advised enterprise users that if they want an 'actual' upgrade, they should go for Google Docs instead.

The blog added that it would also avoid 'expensive and laborious upgrades'.

Matthew Glotzbach, Google Enterprise Product Management Director, wrote: “Google Docs has been providing rich real-time collaboration to millions of users for nearly four years. It lets employees edit and share documents, spreadsheets, and presentations in the browser from anywhere in the world.”

Google further advised users to not to upgrade their current Office 2003 or Office 2007 suites to the 2010 version, as Google Docs enables users to open any type of Microsoft Office file in their browser.
