    I am going to start a trial, but I have been wanting a comparison of Office 365 and Google Apps. I am a Mac user and hating the fact the Microsoft applications on the mac still does not talk to the office 365 Onedrive Business. I want to look at moving but I would like to read or watch a good comparison of the two head to head with out it being more of trying to sell me a service.

    thanks in advance.

    Drive has come even further since I’ve wrote this review. It can do in place native work on MS format docs. As a Mac and Windows and Linux user, I love having the exact same productivity suite where ever I am sitting.
