Office Under Attack! Again!

Old hands are gunning for Microsoft Office. Lately, we've heard of Google's productivity-suite tag team with Capgemini targeting Microsoft Office. There's also a newly released Google PowerPoint competitor. Now, IBM has come lumbering back into the suite game with a free offering based on some old Lotus stuff.

We're looking at IBM's underwhelming offering as another also-ran (although you never know), but it does raise the question -- addressed by ZDNet's amazing three-headed blog -- as to whether there's anybody out there who's not trying to dethrone these kind of the suites.

And speaking of Office, the third service pack for Office 2003 is out now.
