Redmond Unimpressed with Google Office Connector
When Google shipped software that lets users work together on Office files, no one expected Microsoft to break out the Perrier-Jouet. As expected, Redmond popped the cork on some crabapple wine.
Microsoft dissed the Google effort, arguing that it is not secure. Redmond also claims the files may not maintain their fidelity and not all features (like markup review) will work perfectly.
Cynics may point out that Microsoft's Web Office apps aren't perfect either. Sounds like there are plenty of credible insults on both sides.
