Google Fights the Feds

Google apparently isn't afraid of the U.S. federal government and is suing the Interior Department because a cloud RFP specifically required Microsoft products.

The Interior was apparently only looking for solutions that included Microsoft's Business Productivity Online Suite, soon to be renamed Office 365. The Interior's rationale is that BPOS is simply more secure and has a better e-mail toolset.

What say you? Is Google better or worse that BPOS? Share your opinion at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
