Google Getting Serious About Taking On Microsoft In Enterprise

,----[ Quote ]
| So far, Google is almost entirely about the consumer market (if consumer and 
| professional users can be separated at all), with advertisers to pay for 
| it. 'Licensing & Other Revenue' was just 1.0% of total revenues in Q1 of 
| 2007. Now, Google appears to be beefing up this tiny part of its business 
| model.

| tool.

| Google has a friend in Disney, and that could leave Microsoft screaming
| like a jilted lover.


What Google did next for you

,----[ Quote ]
| Another reason is that Google Gears very intelligently gets the Open 
| Source community of worldwide developers get involved in a guerrilla
| war of sorts against Microsoft in the technology industry.
| This further helps Google in terms of getting more innovation 
| through individual and joint developer efforts, distributed 
| computing, moving applications towards a single standard for 
| offline capabilities. You could say Google is a wannabe giant 
| backing the underdogs against an entrenched giant.
