“Google has deployed the first pieces of its upcoming Office suite. They’ve launched Google Apps for your Domain, a set of Google services targeted to small and mid sized companies. With the new service, companies can use Gmail, Talk, Calendar and Page Creator under a single control panel. Applications and data will be hosted by Google, for free, with ad support.

And that’s just the first move. According to Aaron Ricadela at InformationWeek, Google will soon add their Writely and Spreadsheet products to the suite, add collaboration tools that will work across platforms, and even provide technical support.

And when Gmail users send office documents, Google will prompt them to open the documents in Google’s new suite, allowing for collaboration and, presumably, making money from advertising.”

With this launch from Google, can the web based OS be nearer than we might think. They’ve been readying their own suites or packs of apps for a while and once enough users have latched onto these services goodies they may just strike with the biggest sharpest tool in their arsenal.

Ongoing efforts from others to get a web based OS off the ground are also worth a look. Check out YouOS to see how things could shape up in the very near future!
