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.
