I set up a Fedora 9 system at work, and I'm looking into making it my default
system. One of the things I'll need is MS Office, for which we have install
disks for the XP, 2003, and 2007 versions. I see that crossover pro 7.0.0
supports all three of them. Are they supported equally well, or should I
choose a particular version, given that I have a choice?

Does support for Office 2007 extend to Groove? I suspect not, but it doesn't
hurt to ask. Having it would be just about the last obstacle to permanently
switching to Linux at the office.

My experience so far is that 2003 is nicely supprted. Outlook Today
doesn't like to work and opening .ics files doesn't always seem to go
smoothly, but everything else I have done with Outlook, Word, and
Excel has.

It will depend on which parts of Office you need. If, for example, you nwant
to use Access from Office 2003 you're out of luck. Just go to the codeweavers
site, and look for the compatibility link.

My experience so far is that Equation Editor still doesn't work in
Office 2003 with 7.0, which is sadly a showstopper for us, and keeping
us on Office 2000.

I don't know if it might be fixed in 7.1 (does anyone know?). The
problem appears to be some kind of OLE issue, as Equation Editor does
start up and work; just no equation object ever gets created in the Word
doc.
