Google Docs vs. Office 365


So MS announced a 20% reduction in the base price of Office 365.  I’m not a user of either Google Docs or Office 365.  I do use both gMail and Microsoft’s legacy hosted Exchange.  But as for office productivity I’ve stuck with my bloated desktop apps and I’m pretty happy.

I received an advertisement from Microsoft highlighting the superiority of Office 365 to Google Docs.  They provided a link to the same documented hosted on both platforms to provide a comparison of the formatting differences.

Office Web Apps:

Google Docs:  https://docs.google.com/document/d/1woLz_vYkV7_YUz1kMU5OyqvD7y9TANJ3BJ6_5KyQPYk/preview?hl=en&ndplr=1&pli=1&sle=true#

This is a great document but obviously formatted to benefit the 365 argument.  I’m skeptical but would like to know what your experience has been with either product.
