Most users don't office in the cloud: 1% use Google Docs
Google Docs has yet to take a bite out of Microsoft Office's slice of the productivity pie, according to new data from Clickstream Technologies. The market research firm surveyed its standing panel of 2,400 US Internet users and found that, not only was Google Docs usage relatively low compared to other suites, those who used Google Docs continued to use Office alongside it. Google obviously has a long way to go if it wants to compete with Microsoft, but it still has a chance at growing its productivity market share.
Between May and November of this year, only one percent of Clickstream's panel used Google Docs, making it the second most popular free productivity suite after OpenOffice.org (which was used by five percent of the panel). Microsoft Office managed to trounce both, however, with more than 50 percent of the panel making use of it exclusively.
