Google Apps Lame, Microsoft Says

Microsoft and Google clearly dislike each other and make no bones about it. And as a journalist, this is endlessly amusing. Now that they are fighting in the apps space, things are particularly nasty.

The latest salvo is Microsoft's claim that customers are leaving Google Apps in droves because it just can't match the features of the 25 year-old Office.
