I will agree that Google Docs does not have all the functions that Microsoft Word has. But yet oddly, Google Docs does do the simple numbering format, headers as well as footers...

I'm curious to know what tasks or functions you deem "perfunctory".

Re: Implementing is another story
Definitely agree. It's all doable but is the convenience, ease of use there? Sometimes, people aren't looking for just what's doable.

Google Docs is best for collaborative work. It's not something I would consider using if I had another option, ie Office. For what it can do, Google Docs is great, but I wouldn't call it a productivity suite either.

@asksqn,

I agree. It's simply a collaboration tool, not a 'productivity' suite. THat's what Office is for.

Re: Implementing is another story
Agreed. Just because something is "doable" doesn't mean it's useable or elegant or appealing.

I would never refer to Google Docs as a "serious productivity suite."  If all you want is the ability to create a document, then Docs is great.  But if you have advanced formatting needs such as a simple numbering format, headers as well as footers, then all bets are off.  Google Docs is not for you.  It is perfunctory at best.

Implementing is another story
Its one thing to say "with appropriate UC integration" but the devil is in the details.  It's not so fast, easy, or simple.  Although "doable", expectations need to be well managed.
