Web Office Is Nigh

The first real challenger to Microsofts Office is finally ready to emerge ... and it is - no big surprise here - Google. They have Email (Outlook Express) for a while now, recently we heard of the Google Calendar (Outlook?) and now they bought Writely (kind of like Word). Frontpage (aka Google Pages) is in beta for a few weeks now, Access (known as Google Base) has been around for months now. That leaves Excel (I wonder if Dan Bricklin is willing to sell) and PowerPoint of course.
