I spend quite a bit of time daily using Microsoft Word and Excel on both Mac’s and PC’s. For the past week or so I’ve been checking out Google Docs and Spreadsheets for much of this work and really like what I see. As someone who multitasks with multiple web browsers, email, chat, text editors and FTP clients open all the time, I like not having to open Word or Excel for simple document prep. Since Google Docs has PDF as an output medium, I don’t even have to use Word for SOW’s or invoices anymore. Best of all, it’s free.
If I worked at Microsoft, I’d be kind of worried right now.
