Is Office 365 worth spending 3x more than on Google Apps?
Summary: Office 365 is three times the cost of Google Apps. It's worth
it -- but probably not for the reason you expect...
By Matt Baxter-Reynolds
Office's competition has always been products that have tried to emulate
Office's enormous bulk -- think LibreOffice in particular. Google Docs
doesn't try to do that at all. It's a very minimal product.
We know that Office is enormous. There is nothing that the entire
product suite can't do. People often complain about it's labyrinthine
complexity. Another way to look at that is that Microsoft has actually
done a skilled job in masking that complexity. There's enough in there
to drive even the most ardent power user crazy.
Here is my question - are we trying to emulate MSO's "enormous bulk" [of
options]? I hope it is not though of as the bulk of hard drive space
needed to install MSO vs. LO.
I know that LO will not spend money on the server costs for a "cloud"
based version of LO hosted by LO, but it was an interesting read that
may be reflected into the development of LO for Android devices.
