Well, only seems to run on various Windows versions, so not really cross

Since you seem to be happy to use a MS Office compatible office suite,
I'd suggest that you take a careful look at Open Office, since that
should be preinstalled on Ubuntu. I'm using OO 3.0.1 with Fedora 10 and
have yet to meet a MS Office file it can't handle. Its even OK with
really old (MS Word 5 for DOS) files.

If it meets your needs that will save you the time and effort of
installing either Kingsoft or MS Office under Wine.
