I know that WINE development is primarily geared towards Linux, but we run a
FreeBSD environment where we are. We had a look at CrossOver Office but
could not get it to run under FreeBSD. A couple of us at CAIA
(http://www.caia.swin.edu.au) took some spare time and worked to see if we
could make it all work for our environment.
We managed to succeed and now have a MS Office 2000 installation working well
under FreeBSD and WINE 20040505.
For anybody who would like a set of step-by-step instructions on how to do
this, you can find our report at
Happy MS Officing under FreeBSD :-)
