Re: Word/Excel in Ubuntu
Virtualbox, using MS Windows, is really the ONLY way to guarantee full compatibility with MS Office files. MS Word files using the .docx extension have problems being rendered and updated properly in anything other than MS Word. So, if that is important to you on a daily basis, you really have no useful alternative than to use MS Office in MS Windows.

I'm currently dual booting, but would like to move to only Ubuntu eventually. I suppose it's not a big deal though to have two operating systems on one computer.
Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
