    Google is great for some users, but not for all. When sharing Docs with non-Google users, there may be a loss in rich formatting such as spacing, margins and fonts. If you’re still trying to determine what is best for your needs, take a look at “Compare Google Apps to Microsoft and See for Yourself” to see some comparative information: http://smb.ms/cYNFrJ

    Hey
    Jodie_microsoft thanks for this comparison. I found also this one: http://outlook-center.com/Google-Calendar-Sync-and-Google-Sync-vs-Enterprise-Sync-Software/33/

    I tried the one suggested there and it seems to be…well… way better than Google for sharing docs and other files between different computers/users.
