Damn Jawa... sounds like you have a little rage built up!
that i need to run Like Word as OO will never be a good as Office.
Yeah, OO will never spread a virus as effectively as Word, but most of us just need to type a damn document and don't need 1001 features or want a bunch of stupid vbscript someone decided to experiment with screwing things up. When I was at USD law school - none of the lab machines ran Word. Why? Because the stupid program can't set the number of lines per page AND set a specific margin. You tell it 1" margins and the number of lines per page goes off - set the lines per page and, it doesn't tell you this, but the margins would be off. A bunch of dumbasses didn't listen to the instructor and got F's on their first writing assignments because of that program. This was pre-linux for me (1997) and I was simply amazed that Word couldn't do both.
I originally made the slackware comment because I thought it was funny that you would use wine for an ftp client when there are probably 10 or more available in Slack already. I understand the desire to use the same app in different os's - this is part of the reason I like Java so much (that and I can install/update with JWS or use an applet on 3rd party machines). To each his own I guess....
As for CrossOver Office, maybe it's a good idea, but very few apps have been tested. Caveat emptor.
