    I would hardly call this a MS Office like package. It has no Office-like Applications such as Excel, Word, Powerpoint, Access, Publisher, etc. except for Gmail which has only a limited subset of client capabilities of MS Outlook.

    All you could call this is a repackaging of already existing Google web apps. Interestingly, this “Office-like” package is missing the Google apps that would make it more Office-like, such as Writely and Google Spreadsheet.
