It is very buggy and 50% of the time when you submit it does not work.

Honestly speaking No. There are many reasons bcoz of which it can't be my office suite. Since the kind of usability features with other tools like MS, Google docs will definitely have to revamp the system again. I have come across very edifying article from this start up called CollateBox http://www.collatebox.com/ its about making better than Google docs http://blog.collatebox.com/blog/2012/02/making-spreadsheet-data-sharing-better-than-google-docs-.html Have a look at this one.

This is not spam, it is relevant to the conversation. Jackster1337 is wrong.

I use Microsoft Office 2010 but I have the Google Docs plugin installed so all my docs are automatically backed up online. This combo has worked great for me.

Personally, if I have to pay for Microsoft Office, I would rather use Google Docs and Open Office.

Good question!

What features did not feature you needed in your college papers. I have been using it for HighSchool, i uninstalled office, itunes, and started using google everything. Google Docs as my main office suite, i share files with my teachers, classmates, whoever I need to. Uninstalled Kodak EasyShare now I use Google picasa, instead of using thunderbird use web-gmail and google music now instead of itunes. Google chrome over internet explorer,

Good job for you! I would do the same but sometimes Google can't do what software does. I can't sync my iPhone with Google Music, lmao.

It saves every time I do it. Every time. But sometimes its slower on slower computers.

If I had to choose between Office 07/10 or Docs, then I'd go for Office only because it has more functions and is desktop. If I had to choose between OpenOffice (or its other bothers) or Docs, I'd go with Docs. For now, I'm using only Office.

I use Google Docs as my main office suite. Sometimes I have to use Microsoft Office to do very specific things in programs like Word and Excel that you can't do in Google Docs though. So Google still needs to add things to make Google Docs something that can completely replace Office.

No, it doesn't have some necessary features that would help me with some of my college research projects/papers.

Though iWork does the job better for me than MS Office.

My school's doing that now, making us write our papers and share them via Google Docs. I don't like to actually write on Google Docs as I have rather messed up internet and Google might not save my last keystroke. I write it on Word then upload and share.
