Poll: Can Google, Others Supplant Microsoft Office?

Microsoft's Office Suite has a slew of new and powerful competition from Google, IBM and OpenOffice.org. That's all good for consumers, but will it ever have any impact in the corporate space?

Microsoft's Office Suite has a slew of new and powerful competition from Google, IBM and OpenOffice.org. That's all good for consumers, but will it ever have any impact in the corporate space?IBM this week introduced a private-label version of OpenOffice, which itself is a wonderful alternative to MS Office.

InformationWeek's Barbara Krasnoff notes IBM isn't off to the greatest start, however, as its Notes Symphony suite is a real download/registration PITA.

IBM's offering came shortly after OpenOffice.org upgraded its suite to version 2.3, and Google added its PowerPoint competitor to the Google Docs suite.

Take our poll and let me know your company's thinking about office suites -- can any or all of them pose a major challenge to MS Office? Or weigh in with your experiences with these free applications below.
