There is WAY!too mauch functionality missing still for
Office if you are going to WORK with it in Wine at
least without a lot of experimenting with dll

There were also a few weird things I never figured
out...like WHY my mouse buttons were periodically
reversing in wine.

I used to use wine +winetools for my production

Later versions of wine are broken with winetools.

I have since moved to crossover and  am currently
using crossover beta with Office Firefox Serif
PagePlus,Drawplus,and Photo Plus. I am also using
using CorelDraw9 Suite with the beta. The Beta has
been a drastic improvement over the Crossover

FWIW I  have msn messenger working in the beta.Also

I also have the Google Picassa2 installation AND a
straight wine installation.

The only time they interfere is if you end up with
conflicting shortcuts in /home/username/binary...this
probably won't be a factor unless you need to use

The Standard will run Office quite well however. One
note I added scripting visual basic runtimes etc to my
 default bottle.
