Google's co-founder Sergey Brin responded to speculation over at the Web 2.0 and said the search engine giant isn't planning to launch a web-based Office suite.
"We don't have any plans," he told Web 2.0 conference organizer John Battelle. However Brin left the door open a little. Documents would be easier to work with in the future, he promised, but he didn't think a fat client was the way to go.
"I don't really think that the thing is to take a previous generation of technology and port them directly," he told Battelle. However distributed thin web applications allowed you to do "new and better things than the Office package and more."
