hajmola writes "According to an article in The Inquirer, 'Google has confirmed that it will launch free spreadsheet and word-processing software online and take on Microsoft in one of its biggest markets. Under the deal, Google will allow web users to access Sun's OpenOffice from a toolbar.'" This is full confirmation of a story from Tuesday. Forbes thinks this isn't anything to write home about, while InfoWorld disagrees.

Well, this will certainly smack Microsoft, especially if the program is compatible with the Microsoft programs that do the same thing. I can think of lots of anti-Microsofties that are eager to dump their microsoft products for an alternative.
