Google "We're happy to announce that we have acquired Quickoffice, a leader in office productivity solutions. Today, consumers, businesses and schools use Google Apps to get stuff done from anywhere, with anyone and on any device. Quickoffice has an established track record of enabling seamless interoperability with popular file formats, and we'll be working on bringing their powerful technology to our Apps product suite." Excellent acquisition - Quickoffice has always been a fine product, and this gives Google instant access to a wide array of native mobile office applications. Crazy nobody else ever picked these guys and girls up. Also, if Google makes Quickoffice available for free, we can enjoy yet another "Google is competing unfairly by not charging customers money for products"-whine-a-thon. That alone is worth it.

In the place I work they exploit office at its maximum, it is a valuable tool for business, they can't live w/o excel, it is simple a must have, pivot tables, it is even connected to SAP Business One to get their reports there so they can manipulate it at their pleasure, word is another tool the use daily and it is another must have, so, believe it or not there are people who use it extensive.

The Human Resources department use Power Point a lot also.

Yes? And Google Docs never claimed to be a full fledge suite. No one claims you can support entire enterprise workloads on Google Docs. It only claims to be good for collaborative work, which it is.
