>>I'm really excited to announce that you can now insert footnotes into
your Google Documents! For those of you who enjoy doing research
papers, you'll get a lot of use out of this feature. You can export
your footnotes to PDF. You can also export your footnotes to Word but
they'll actually show up as endnotes, not footnotes.
Take a look at the help article below for more detailed information.

Enjoy this new feature! <<

Ballmer said he didn’t consider Google Microsoft’s biggest competitor. Gartner’s questioners asked Ballmer about the Google Apps threat and he became animated. “People don’t use it. People try Google Apps, they don’t use it. You can’t even put a FOOTNOTE in a document!”

Haaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!

Hopefully Microsoft will get off its butt and create a serious competitor to Google Apps.

Or they'll continue to be a good example of what no other company should ever repeat in the future and die out because of it.

Google Docs apparently fails to correctly convert footnotes in uploaded ODT files, so the footnote text seems to be lost in the process, but you still get a useless footnote number which hyperlinks to nothing.

Maybe Google hurriedly developed this functionality after Ballmer's criticism but ended up doing a half-baked job.

I was going to post "Quick Microsoft complain Google Docs doesn't have..."
but I couldn't think of anything I actually need. Google Docs has successfully replaced Office for me :P
