Granted, it's not FOSS, but if you really are forced to deal with Word/Excel/PowerPoint files on a regular basis, and if slight layout changes due to conversion to .odf are not acceptable, then this looks like a decent enough deal (http://appdb.winehq.org/objectManager.php?sClass=version&iId=4992) to me.

That may be so, but the fact still remains - It won't work on Ubuntu.

Maybe you should actually check out weblinks that are given in posts you're replying to? It would sure save you from looking stupid.

Wait, since when was the gPC using an AMD Sempron?
Wasn't is supposed to be resource-unhungry?
Couldn't they use the VIA Nano?

Crossover IS an implementation of Wine.

From Crossover Site:
"Running Wine or CrossOver: Unlike emulation, Wine is a re-implementation of the Win32 API, allowing applications to run as if natively on the target OS. CrossOver is a commercialized version of Wine."

I know, they are the major contributors to Wine. It is what some of the Wine dev's do so they can eat. :-)
