Jon Udell: Envisioning information

Jon Udell: Envisioning information

Interesting... I dont use office products much, actually other than creating a resume, I've not had any need for office software. But I do wonder, if Microsoft had not become the defacto office suite provider, maybe we could have had some healthy competition in the office space. Maybe the office suite would have had the feature that Jon talks about in his blog post. The problem with the current competition that Office has is that OpenOffice/Koffice/Abiword-gnumeric are all still playing catchup to Microsoft Office. Unlike the browser space, where Firefox has far surpassed Internet Explorer. So we will not see some cool innovation in Office until OpenOffice.org catches up. I'm just following history here... maybe I'm wrong.
