    Using office 2013 in wine, should I even try?

    Im taking a course that requires you to essentially copy documents in office 2013. (It sucks but its a required course at my college) I could not care less if it lags terribly or has other issues, but would it be possible to simply use it to get this class out of the way?

    Edit:I already have a copy from before I ditched windows8 and beat my pc with a samurai sword.

    To answer your original question in the title -- NO. Office 2013 does not work in Wine -- yet. It took CodeWeavers about three years to get Office 2010 working; so in about that time, they might have Office 2013 working.

    From what I've read, to use the browser version of Office 2013, you have to use the MS SkyDrive -- which means saving your work to the MS "cloud".
    Ubuntu 15.04 Mate, Mint 17.1; MS Win 8.1, Win10 TP.
    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.

    Thanks, I suppose virtual box is my only option then.
