Hi

I love Google Apps, but I am fed up of the advertising they do by collecting data from my use of their service.
The services I use the most from Google is
Gmail
Google Calendar
Google Docs
Google Cloud Connect

I like how i can personalize my Gmail to have my organization logo instead of the Gmail logo, share address book with other users, sync calendar with my android phone and with other users, Share by loading files to Google Docs, and edit Docs on Office programs using Cloud Connect.

However I feel since Windows 8 is coming out soon, and I will most probably be using Windows 8 for my organization and i always use Microsoft Office products, it might be just more easier to have a MS version of Google Apps if there is such a thing.

Any Advice would be Much Appreciated thanks.

Thanks

Are you interested in cloud based computing?

Ya but 365 for what i am using it for would cost $6 Per user/month :/
But i can see that im trying to get everything that google provides but from MS without advertising.
Although i wouldn't mind advertising with MS too if it meant it would be free
