Google Does it Again...
Seeing Google's moves in past few days anyone would expect Google to be one of the company which has become Microsoft's nightmare. The good part is since M$ is a company everyone(I mean sensible one) love to hate, Google becomes the company which they love.
[Update: New reasons to hate M$ as demanded by M$ lovers : http://trends.newsforge.com/trends/05/10/01/1548246.shtml?tid=29 ]
Sometime ago we were just speculating about what kind of partnership with a Microsoft competitor should Google be looking forward too. Google and Apple combo came to my mind, Google and IBM is much expected combination, then Google and HP etc the list can go on. To our surprize Google has finally joined efforts with Sun to combat the evil. There collaboration's outcome can only be speculated still, since they haven't given any clearcut statements.
The most speculated is their effort to work on a Web based version of Open Office. For those who don't know there are already lots of applications to show the power of web AJAX word processor, AJAX spreadsheet, AJAX calendar, AJAX presentation-building software, AJAX e-mail client, AJAX note-taking software.
