    Microsoft has made tremendous progress in the Office 365 suite compared to Google over the last few years. Google to this day, after years and year of complaints from Apps users, has done nothing to address the terrible lack of usable Contact sharing. Microsoft's offering, while still in need of work, is substantially better along with their support. Furthermore, unless you're in the USA, Google has completely ignored non-profits and education institutions. Users, again, have been asking for many years when Google will offer the similar benefits to non-profits and education in other countries only to hear "soon" but get nothing. Microsoft, on the other hand, is miles ahead in their offering world-wide. Google did away with the standard "free" version of GApps and in the meantime the early adopters are now being punished with a slow continual erosion of usefulness. Google's "Do no evil" should be changed to "Do no evil, but do no good either". If I were looking at a Cloud Suite for my company today, I'd be looking at Microsoft with Google near the bottom of the list. I used to be a big fan but have lost patience with a company that seems to ignore the critical needs of its users and put such little effort into supporting NGO's and Education (beyond the US). Reply

    Does "support" mean full, correct support of office documents, or just the ability to work with most of these documents without crashing.

    Given that Google's products, while exciting, are mostly beta quality, and the office documents specifications are very complex, I would expect it is the latter.

    I think he means picking up the phone and talking to someone on the other end. I can't even get a decent call to a sales team either.

    Sorry but throwing out numbers of top universities that use them doesn't mean it's a good product, uni's have classically used poor products
