Since this book was submitted for printing Microsoft released a competitor to the Google Apps suite of programs. The suite is known as Office 365 to distinguish it from the Office product that resides on your computer and which I refer to in the chapter. Here’s a review from the Guardian. Here’s a news item from the BBC. Office 365 is a service rather than a software item that you can implement on your computer. The tussle between this and Google Apps will be an interesting one over the next few years. What is clear, though, is that if Microsoft is taking an interest in the cloud then it has arrived!
