Create, open, upload, edit, convert, download - all from the single Apps interface.
Then again...Office has a few "Apps", too
And I didn't even install Outlook!
Access document properties directly
Office 2010 gives you direct access to revisions, permissions, authorship, etc at the file level.
Enabling rich editing in Apps
Yeah, yeah, this is what gets you the Wordpad-style ruler.
Everything you need?
It's a stripped down interface, but is it everything that 95% of users need to create a presentation? And in the cloud besides for easy remote presentation, sharing, interaction, etc? It will probably do the trick if you can forgo Smart Art and fancy transitions (although the update now allows transitions by bullet item).
More of everything you need?
What are your users producing? Prose, text, and notes, or highly-formatted documents?
Even more of everything you need?
Google Spreadsheets is increasingly rich in its features set:??*Forms improvements?*Solver improvements?*Improved image integration?*Linear equation modeling tools?*Sheet-level permissions?*Mobile editing
Then again, there's Excel
Want to talk rich? Check out the first ribbon. An awful lot of capabilities are right there.
The full Google Docs Suite
Drawings, forms, word processing, spreadsheets, and presentations, along with storage, all in the cloud.
Ummm, there's not an equivalent in Google Apps. Need RDBMS modeling? You probably want Access.
And there's the oft-maligned ruler
It's in the cloud - it's cooler than Wordpad, no matter what the Microsoft folks say.
This is why you need Ribbon Hero
There's beauty in simplicity. There's also power in them thar' Ribbons! Decisions, decisions.
OneNote - another exclusive?
Some OneNote functionality can be duplicated in Docs, but OneNote itself is quite powerful with cloud integration built in.
Sure, Docs has templates but...
...Office's are a wee bit more sophisticated.
You mean I can double and single space?
Unless you pull something funky with tables or CSS, you're locked into one kind of spacing in a Docs document. Obviously, you have your choice by paragraph of spacing and fine formatting in Office.
