    Goo gooo Microsoft, great news, maybe a new revenue stream, maybe beating Google out of the small business market, since most Google customers do not pay for Google Docs. Yes MS does not only dominate the big enterprise market, but who knows, maybe soon they will also dominate the small business market.
