Google formally declares war on Microsoft

This is going to be interesting. The Inquirer reports thatGoogle formally declares war on Microsoft and is to launch free online office functionality.

If I were MS, I'd be scared about this. I can't for the life of me work out the business model Google is thinking of, or see how they'll get around the security and privacy concern. But this is a bold move - and is going to be shaking some pretty tall trees fairly hard in Redmond. And if Google can launch this before MS launch B1 of O12, it will further spike Redmond's guns.
