Microsoft Office 365 or Google G Suite

For a business, I think Office 365 is a better choice than GSuite.

First, I can’t stand the Google business calendar. I really hate it. I miss meetings all the time because it has to rely on the browser to notify me. With a desktop app, you get more functionality and still can use the online version whenever you want. Outlook Web Access used to be terrible, it is true. But these days it works great.

I understand that the BRAND of Google is better than the brand of Microsoft. I get that. However, that doesn’t mean the actual product is better. I have been using G Suite for the past 2 years and I have hated it almost the entire time. I miss Office. It is just better in almost every way.

I like Slack, but it’s not integrated with the rest of my personal stack. I like Confluence, but its not integrated into anything else. Microsoft Teams and SharePoint are solid products.

There are sheeple out there who refuse to give Office a chance. I beg them, please, please, please…give Office a chance.

Side note: I am presenting at Stanford tonight. It’s a guest lecture kind of thing. I love Stanford. If I could design the campus of my dreams, it would be Stanford.

Whatya think?
