    When you work with a team, slight font differences cause major issues in layout, pagination, even section headings are screwed. Also, LibreOFfice "track changes" probably does not play well with MS-Office users. I haven't tried it recently, but last time using track changes corrupted the file so that the MS-Office people couldn't open it.

    Another reason is embedding MS-Visio diagrams. For me, MS-Visio is THE killer app with no alternative. Adding Visio diagrams inside LibreOFfice docs didn't work the last time I tried it - sure, I could embed an image, but not the "object".

    In a mixed corporate environment, 100% compatibility is mandatory. I'm unwilling to be "that guy" who can't play well with others at work.

    When I work alone, I use LibreOffice because I prefer the interface.
    When I'm sharing documents in a team inside and outside my company, MS-Office is mandatory.

    I wish the world were different.

    Thanks for this so much!!!! Im new to Ubuntu and realised that I could not live without MS word because LibreOffice Writer is not up to standards.

    Don't say that, you will cause a flame war in here. But I am with you.

    Everything I had works well with 1.4 rc6. That makes me happy.

    Re: Finally MS Office 2010 works on Ubuntu.

    I have already installed wine 1.3 through synaptic. I was trying to install dotnet20 msxml6 but they are not downloading.so i tried updating and found that the wine updates are not being downloaded for lack of authentication key. So i tried the above method to add the repositories and got the error.
    I am on HP 210 mini netbook with ubuntu 11.1

    The internet connection is fine and i changed the download servers but same result............

    Thanks for the install manual.

    I have the following comments:

    • Winbind has to be installed (sudo apt-get install winbind)
    • I copied /etc/mono/2.0/machine.config (cp /etc/mono/2.0/machine.config ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Microsoft.NET/Framework/v2.0.50727/CONFIG/)
    • For me, setup.exe just closed when only showing about 70% progress and I thought it failed, but then I had Word, Excel and Powerpoint in my start menu and all work fine

    I was using the wifi(automatic DHCP). But then i tried with my mobile broadband connection which uses automatic PPP I and i could add the repository. Then i could update with update manager with my wifi connection. I had to check for updates again in update manager before i could install them.(without that, it was giving error that winetricks is not safe source to download or something like that ) But i could not install dotnet20 and msxml6 with the wifi. But with mobile broadband i could do it. I am not sure but it may be to do with opening of port 11371 in the router of wifi.

    I was able to connect and update the repository as root.
