Advantages of Google's cloud-based services versus Microsoft's?

Here is a part of an interview today conducted by CNN/Fortune Tech with Google’s Enterprise Chief

What do you see as the advantages of Google’s cloud-based services versus Microsoft’s?

We have the advantage of being born of the cloud. We are a 100% web company. We’re not trying to retrofit anything of the past. Microsoft is a great company but their applications were built in the world of a single PC and a single user. What that amounts to is we can go faster. We are pure web. We only have one email system. We only have one code base and it allows us to be more nimble. We are putting features out to our customers that were only conceived of a few months ago or maybe even a few weeks ago. So we don’t have a to wait for the next big bang upgrade. There’s no such thing as a big bang upgrade in our world. The applications just continue to get better every week. That model of delivery is really hard for Microsoft and others to replicate.
