You get much less.. it would be better to compare it with WordPad, not with
an office suite...

Hmmm... I've developed such applications in year 2000, and more early... I
think there is no real new technology used by these applications, if there
is an invention then it's the way such applications or services are used and
sold ("Web2.0", Mashups,...). So quite old technologies (most of it), new
business strategies, IMHO....

Cheers, Konstantin

Betreff: Who needs GoogleDocs ?


Hi,
once in a while I read articles nowadays an GoogleDocs and others which
promise
to edit stuff from everywhere. Often these are new applications which work
browserbased
and it seems like it's the biggest invention since sliced bread :-)
So I wonder. Do you get much more compared to a WebDAV/DeltaV server
together
with your good old office suite ? Just assuming it supports WebDAV.
Or is this just another case of hype ?

Cheers, Edgar
