Re: zoho, google office or just stick with M$ right now?

Great article today(with poll) about state of office/web-office  
tools. The interesting thing to note is that the audience is  
primarily early-adopter crowd, who still seem to have a huge hurdle  
in trying to get past the MS office suite.

I think its primarily 2 factors - feature set(includes navigation of  
menu, buttons, shortcuts, macros etc) and also convenience(Word icon  
is right there on your desktop and everyone knows how to use it).  
IMHO, the best web-office tool is one that is going to be a  
combination of desktop/online integration and zoho is one step closer  
than google docs(Maybe MS Groove too but I never really could figure  
that out).
