Now this is something you really got to watch :)
I think Microsoft is getting really nervous about competition from emerging Online office tools. First it trashed Google Apps and now their corporate VP, Ron Markezich of Microsoft Online has called Zoho as Fake office.
I have been a big fan of Zoho over last couple of years and have mentioned it earlier couple of times on this blog. Their products are superlative and they have kept up with times. What’s more they are very cost effective as well !
Now, to be honest this VP guy had no business to make such a comment, but he did and Zoho has retaliated – and it has done it in such a way that not only are they getting positive buzz, but Microsoft image is taking a further hit
After this interview was published on November 3rd, Zoho did not spend any time in coming up with their answer – Fake Office
Here is what they did – They put a nice little preface:
Fake? Well, if by "fake" Microsoft meant that there is no CD or DVD to buy, no bloatware to download, nothing to install, no hundreds of dollars to pay… then yeah, we agree.
Why would Microsoft want to discourage you from trying the Fake Office? If it was truly a "Fake" Office, then we wouldn’t pose a risk to them, would we?
And published this Video called –
Fake Office – The Movie
What an answer ! loved it :)
These guys are good…period !
