I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As a developer, the most obvious difference is in the scripting language. Word uses VBA (Visual Basic for Applications), while Google uses Google Apps Script.

I don't think you're asking the right question.  I've heard numerous statements over the years that suggest that most users don't use or even need 80% (or 90% or 70% or some other high percentage) of Words functionality... BUT, that doesn't mean that there aren't a feature or two that you wouldn't be losing if you switch.  The only RELIABLE way to know if this will be a problem for you would be to switch and find out.  Keep in mind there will be a learning curve.  And translation of office docs is not perfect.  Some people don't care.  Some do.  And to be clear, scripting language aside, how word decides all the text on a page will fit on the page is different from Google... Google may cause a line break sooner (or later) than Word... and the result could be that your previously one page document that you squeezed into one page is now taking TWO pages.  Again, some care, some don't.  Which are you?  Regardless, at the end of the day YOU need to evaluate your usage and requirements to know if this will work for you or not... we can't do it for you.
