    Default MS Word or Google Docs?

    A friend of mine introduced me to the world of Google. Specifically Google Docs. I think it is a great tool for college students who don't want to bring a USB or email their docs forward to where they are working.

    Not to mention Office 2007 and the incompatable .docx files. I know there is an easy save as 2003 format, and that USB flash disks aren't a pain, but is Google Docs the Future of documents?

    I'm just wondering what you guys think and what you guys use. You can select more than one!

    Google Docs is okay, but the entire world is heavily based on Office 97/2000/2003, and that won't change. As far as online programs go, I think it will get a huge following and probably do very well, but it will not replace locally-run office suites.

    Office 2007 offers even less than Vista as an upgrade, so it will be at least a year before it has any market penetration.

    At work and school, I use Office 2003 since it's what's installed. I always make sure my resume is good in Office 2003 as well.

    For personal use, I use OpenOffice. It offers backwards compatibility with Office 2003 and older, but it has a few quirks and occasionally doesn't work right.

    I also use Notepad extensively. Any HTML or batch work I do needs to be done in Notepad, and ASCII is much easier to work with in many applications, so I find myself working with it frequently for a variety of purposes.
