Looks like Documents to Go will get bought out by Microsoft or Apple now. Although there are a few other really good suites out there too. I have always preferred Documents to Go (used since Palm days) but it has been a while since I have tried Quick Office. I feel this will be good for customers.

Simple solution: Just dont buy it and you're rid of it. Carry on.

I haven't used Microsoft Office since around 2000. I used OpenOffice.org for many years until Oracle screwed that up, now I'm still trying to decide between Libre (but I haven't found a Windows version for it) or Symphony (which is a bit bloated and not as intuitive).

The point is there is no good reason to be M$ Office in this day and age except to line M$'s pockets.

This seems to me as if Google is making defensive move concerning their Docs and/or are intending to bring support for MS Office formats to Docs without having to negotiate terms directly with MS.

Great now when Google makes QuickOffice a pay only app, I'll move to a Nokia Lumia 900 and get free Mobile MS Office ;)
