I am working with a school who are looking at Office 365 for use with their students and staff. Has anyone gone through the process of comparing Google apps and Office 365? I'd be really interested in pros and cons that you have found.
I am going through a similar process. Here are the big ticket compromises I see. Note I have written several of them all as negatives, could easily spin them the other way to show the positive for the other product/system

Apart from all that - the bottom line is speed, usability and uptake amongst learners - Google wins hands down, in my opinion:)
So more opinions to add
