Saw this announcement yesterday about Google IME. I have been using this in gmail for quite some time but having on desktop is a lot more useful. You can use it in word, excel and native email clients. I guess this will bring more people on computers and internet.
If it was available in Linux it would also make it usable for lot of people on old computers who don't want to use pirated software's.
I wish my phone had same feature. :)
