Here's another announcement today aimed squarely at MSFT: http://www.iht.com/articles/2007/05/31/business/google.1-65268.php

"Millions of people enjoy free Web-based software programs, but they have a drawback in that they are available to users only when they are online.

Now Google is hoping to help make many of those programs available offline as well, among them its own free Web-based applications like Docs and Spreadsheets. In doing so, Google will more openly challenge Microsoft and its office productivity tools, like Excel and Word, which are more advanced programs than Docs and Spreadsheets but cost hundreds of dollars."
