      WINE already runs Office 2003 out of of the box for free since some time ago.. :crazyhappy:

      Personally, in linux or whichever OS is used, I've began using Open Office and recommend it to more people because even thought it can't obviously be as good as MS Office, at least the price tag is just about right - free of charge and I hope future versions only get better as more people use them.

      Even 2007 is supported thought it will require some extra manual work - http://appdb.winehq....iVersionId=4992

        I downloaded it for my mac. OpenOffice on a mac is still a bloaty slow affair even though its native now instead of requiring X11.

        Ironically enough I actually prefer (Novell) OpenOffice on Windows to (Novell) OpenOffice on Linux. It seems much faster for some reason even on similar hardware.

          Install the latest version of Java on your machine and then select it as default for using with OpenOffice.

          After doing this simple step it seriously changed the speed performance on either XP or Linux machines.
