Starting today we’re making Quickoffice for Android and iOS available for free, for everyone. With Quickoffice, you can edit Microsoft Office documents across your devices, giving you the freedom to work with anyone no matter what hardware or software they’re using. Plus, it’s integrated with Google Drive storage so you can safely access your files from anywhere.

And unlike Microsoft Office, it's completely free. Good move by Google.

Not necissarily. Google Drive/Docs (free) did compete with quick office ( not free). It wasn't much of a competition, quick office was much much better. Google couldn't beat them, so it bought them. If there is a group of engineers who think they can do a better job, the opportunity is there.
