    Play On Linux Question

    Can Play On Linux be used for Running Microsoft Office or Adobe Apps or is it just for running games, as if I can help it I want use free software as much as possible.
    I know there is Libra Office that does the same, but I've got an Office 365 subscription & have got used to the Ribbon interface used in Office & the Libra Office menu bar system feels a little dated to me?

    Don't know about Office 365 but you can install Office 2007 and 2010 through PoL. Most components work perfectly well, only Access fails AFAIK.

    Ok thanks, I only really use Word, and very rarely use any other of the Office Apps.

    When I've backed up some important stuff to Box & burned some ios files to disk I'll stick 12.10 onto my Laptop, been thinking about doing it for a while, but just getting round to it now as I've got some problems with Windows 8, so a good excuse to give Ubuntu a proper go as my main system.
