Yes, I heard this some times from users that it takes extremely long
time with IE6.

That's what I use Office 2000 for. And there are some issues of
exchanging documents with hopeless colleagues ;-)

Crosshover has *many* advantages over WineTools, such as seamless
integration in the desktop with all your other applications and for
some apps even better compatibility. For commercial or migrational
usage I definitely recommend using CrossOver office. They give great
support and do many things for you if you have an app you really need.
