It's tough all over. Just ask Google...

Information Week for 4/12/10 has an article about Google's Real-Time Bet to take over the desktop. The writer notes that, at present, about 78% of business technology professionals polled said that Office meets all their needs.

Does that sound familiar? In this one sense--and maybe for this one fleeting instant--Google and mind mapping software companies have the same problem: Office. Well, I guess Office is mind mapping's worst nightmare and its best friend. Most mind mapping companies have been trying for so long to break down the Microsoft citadel wall--or sneak in through some abandoned airshaft--that it's good to see we're not alone.
