Microsoft Hits Back at Google - WSJ.com

Excerpt from an Office snapshot -- I suspect QuickOffice is going to play a big role in the next round of Office/Google (Drive + Apps) competition
"So far, there are few signs Microsoft Office is being seriously dented by Google Apps.
Office continues to have more than a 90% market share for "business-productivity software," as the category is known, and more than an 80% share of corporate email, according to research firm Gartner Inc.
Microsoft's Office division also remains financially strong, delivering the biggest chunk of revenue and profits to the company.
For the nine months ended March 31, the division generated operating profit of $11.6 billion, or more than half of the company's total operating profit for the period.
Yet Microsoft appears to be ceding ground to Google in some respects."
