GOOGLE HAS confirmed that it will launch free spreadsheet and word-processing software online and take on Microsoft in one of its biggest markets.
Under the deal, Google will allow web users to access Sun's OpenOffice from a toolbar.
More at the Brisbane Courier Mail, here.
I had seen the Sun/Google announcement, but not the confirmation that OpenOffice was involved. Seems to be a lot of librarian interest in the past couple weeks about web-accessible productivity tools. Library Clips has a really nice roundup (or at least a list), and Rebecca's playing with several too.
