Spreadsheets could erode Excel user base

Following the release of Google Spreadsheets, Microsoft may find it difficult to retain some of its Excel spreadsheet users, according to an informal CNET poll.

Thirty percent of readers who responded to the poll indicated they would make the switch from Microsoft's Excel program to Google Spreadsheets, which debuted earlier this week.

With the reports I have read so far, it looks like most people would recommend staying with OpenOffice or Excel.
