Google Plans to Go After 80% of Microsoft's Office Users

GOOGLE’S GAMES OF THRONES: Are you a Microsoft Office lover? (We know you’re out there, PowerPoint addicts.) Google’s coming for you--at least according to this somewhat breathless piece in BusinessInsider. On the other hand, the value prop is sweet: $5 a month for many tools vs $8 a month for Microsoft 360. Another compelling number: 40 million students, teachers, and administrators now use Google Apps for Education.

EDITOR'S NOTE: A spokesperson for Google clarifies that the $5/month deal is for the Apps for Work suite only, rather than Apps for Education.
