High Plains Drifting to Google

Wyoming, a state that most high schoolers can't find on a map even when the word is printed in a 25-point font, is ditching a grab-bag of software and going all in with Google Apps.

Roughly 10,000 employees will be using the Google software over the Web, saving the state a cool million bucks a year. Google actually has a special version of its apps for the government market.

I happen to think this is great. Every company needs competition and Microsoft Office has gone far too long without a serious alternative.
