Just a couple of days after Google launched a "Gmail intervention" video and website urging you to invite your friends to make the switch to Gmail, Microsoft has hit back, in this leaded video from one of the tech giant's annual sales conferences.

The message -- use Microsoft's Office 365 -- it won't make your business theirs.
