Are you FAQ'in me?  This is #1 bug/support mistake not seen since DOS. 

I don't have time for reading, I'm a former windows user - not to mention I've
got a business to run.

That said I got past the initial bug reported i.e. Office 2003 doesn't install.
 Plus I did it without a terminal output which is eerily similar to DOS command

I now open Outlook where everything is fine, except I get a Word error that I
don't have enough memory to use it. To reiterate I open Outlook and get a Word
memory error.  I have 2Gb of RAM.

So I open Word and so far it seems to work.

I open Excel and and Powerpoint, where both seem to hang - like a bad date.  At
least with the blue screen of death, I knew that I was dead.

Oh and another thing, I installed Maxtor software.  Why?  Well of course Linux
can't read my OneTouch USB external storage - where I backed up all my previous
Windows world files.  Imagine it installs but stalls at the end of course
around the services area it seems.

Therefore I challenge Wine project members - IF you are seeking to bridge the
conversion of former Windows users to the Linux - THEN feel free to convert me.
 Linux and Wine promises have put my business in a tough position.

Again I welcome positive, constructive and useful bug support. Wine is 'no
question' a buggy application to date.

Good luck otherwise
