I had breakfast this morning with a CPA who does all of his work in Google docs. There is an entire generation of future workers going through high school and college now who don’t even have Office installed on their computers.
Wow. As anyone who follows Microsoft’s revenue stream, Office is a large part of its top line. I recognize that Windows itself is not going anywhere anytime soon, so let’s not go down the “Microsoft is losing” road. I don’t buy that. But, with Office, it’s becoming increasingly not needed by everyone and their brother.
