As I wrote on my blog yesterday, Google could deliver a knockout punch to Microsoft if it melded the power of OpenOffice with Google Docs, and then sold support for the two, as well as selling other services such as mail and mass storage.
You don't have to wait for Google to take the advice though. You can integrate the two today. An eagle-eyed reader of my blog noted that such a thing is already possible, to a certain extent. It's not available from Google, but instead is a free OpenOffice extension.
It's not the full integration that one may hope for. But it's free, it works, and it's a great way to take advantage of both services. No matter how you look at it, it's a winner.
