Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office

While Microsoft is driving full speed to move its products to cloud, e.g. Office 365, Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, Dynamics CRM Online, Windows Azure, SQL Azure… etc., Google has released a desktop plug-in for Microsoft Office to some selected beta users. 

Google Cloud Connect for Microsoft Office is an Office plug-in that synchronizes our documents with our Google Docs accounts.  Once our document is stored in our Google Docs accounts, then we can easily share our documents and even simultaneously edit them with multiple people. Google  Docs also provides version control so we can revert to earlier versions. It would work with Office 2003, 2007 and 2010.

Unfortunately, Google Cloud Connect is only available to selected beta users.  So if we want to save our documents to cloud and share our documents with other people now, then we may have to use SkyDrive from Microsoft.

Now Google wants to connect to Microsoft?  What would happen next?
