Android: SoftMaker Office besting MS Office
I received this offer from the German software publisher SoftMaker earlier today. So I have been invited to participate as a beta tester for their Office product. This is a very competent alternative to Microsoft Office.
Looks like an outsider is besting Microsoft to the Android platform over the Office product. Microsoft Office for Android is not the complete PC version. On the other hand SoftMaker is almost ready to offer one that is better than what Microsoft is selling and I am sure at a fraction of Microsoft's price. That giant in Redmond is in trouble. The performance gap between tablets and PC can only narrow even as both can only get more powerful. Gradually Windows and Office will become yesterday. Microsoft is in deep trouble because it can no longer execute well and quickly. It is terribly hard to play catch up successfully when you are late.
