Wine runs hundreds of programs perfectly and thousands of linux users (many of
them being former Windows users) are happy with it. Office 2003 is good, but
easily replaceable (OpenOffice, KOffice, Google Docs, whatever). Moreover, it
works under Wine well enough to do some simple tasks from time to time:
converting documents bloated with formatting, reviewing documents before
sending them etc - these cover 1% of Office functionality that is really
unique very good. For daily use there are native office applications.

Posting so pointless yet so arrogant things may be free for you, but it's bad
for your karma.
If you have experienced problems - fill bugreports and help make Wine better.
If you want to start a flame - do it somewhere else, please.
Sorry, if I insulted someone by this post.
