Hi!
In connection with the work, necessitated the installation on Linux (Linux) "Microsoft Office home and student 2010", including Word, Excel, Power Point, OneNote. Need mostly Word and Excel. I know about LibreOffice and OpenOffice.org the last set as the office default. But that's still compatibility issues make us think about buying office from Microsoft. Clarify that the purchase of Windows is not expected. With Lingusamy just getting started, tried Runtu Linux Mint, and Ubuntu has the latest version in stock. PC Pentium-4, RAM 384 MB (there is no possibility to buy more), so while I think what to put finally, what about XFCE and LXDE and in General lightweight in the work of Linux know now looking for a suitable alternative. But of course it is more important to deliver and successfully run the office for work, performance on the second place (especially since the office is not a graphics or video), so interesting to say, any Linux. Pogugliv, went to the page of the Wine compatibility: all versions of office and I need. As you can see, successful options for Office 2010 (32 bit) happened with Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick" x86_64 (+ variants like Kubuntu) + Wine 1.3.10, as well as openSUSE 11.1 + Wine 1.3.9. Both turned out with a rating of "Bronze". It can be assumed that progress does not stand still and that is Ubuntu 10.10 in conjunction Ubuntu 10.10 "Maverick" + Wine 1.3.10 is theoretically possible to put the latest Ubuntu or other Linux, her relatives (as recently updated Linux Mint).

Actually questions:
1) Put someone in this office on Linux under Wine, how well? What configuration? If there were any problems with the work in General, with activation license under Wine?
2) Some offtopic: on the website about this office says that the trial period is 60 days. According to the description you can understand what sort of office linked to the computer, i.e. the hardware. Very interesting, if you put and activate a trial version of office on one of Linkus, and there he will not run normally, it is possible to carry with the system and re-bet on another Linux? What will happen to the 60-day trial period, the timer will run again? In General, whether the office is bound to iron and as is the case with a trial period?
3) here's a very interesting question. As you know, UNIX antivirus not needed, but we also know that through Microsoft Word documents on Windows OS often get all sorts of harmful substances. At work it's almost nobody cares, me too, but I would not want to be infected by the docks in the process of working on them in the office on a home PC via Wine anywhere and in no way climb in my Linux and are not hosted, not climb in private life. Ie copied the documents from the flash drive to a specific folder on the PC, worked, threw the result back to the flash drive (and deleted the files from the computer) so that I can wear to work, while on my PC under Linux will not be happening any anomalies, despite the fact that all working documents are often infected. In General, I'm just not special, I don't care what the docks at work go infected, it is important that the work space in the home Linkuse not exposed to danger through the hole of the office.

Very interesting views, and the experience of the units may be any other solution how to run office 2010 on Linux and how to do it safer, maybe there are even diametrically different solutions? In addition to the office preferably of course free.

In the list the desired CrossOver office. In PlayOnLinux too.

Unlikely to get to run Office 2010 through Wine especially especially without lag. Too many dependencies, the features it uses. As a variant — install on VirtualBox, in Office from under him rabtat quite comfortable.

Together with *.doc, *.docx documents can spread macro viruses. No "sensible" I have not yet met, and to hurt Linux, they just can't. Besides, it is possible to allow only signed macros (which, in principle, the default).

As I understand it, VirtualBox can be run primarily with Windows itself, but not itself Office in Linux under VirtualBox? I somehow without Windows need. About Macrovirus — OK, I remember (just a little early in the office enjoyed), I think about the other viruses that can be on a flash drive and you can not think, working under Linux. It's a little hard to imagine what it could be lag, but a word with Excel I need for simple office work, not in the magazine to work — something most common. Not all enterprises and institutions to proceed at once to open offices there now, need to spend money every time on new and sit under WinXP.

You gave links on the page compatibility of Wine with the installer of office. I own the 2010s, Word and Excel the status of "Garbage" ("Trash"):

Cool. Ie, if the method of copying will work better? You have such an experience? It means that you need to install office on another PC, the license Windows, there to activate the trial license (and subsequently purchased license to activate it), then copy the entire directory of office on a PC with Linux, to demolish the office on Windows me and will 'license happiness' on Linux?

Why don't you try slightly outdated office? 2003 at least? And with the memory no problem.
\r
And, by the way, why are you so immediately rejected OpenOffice/LibreOffice? Maybe Compatibility Mode in Word 200x you at your work is enough?
And about the table I'm not saying there's probably no compatibility issues.
Although analogue PowerPoint in OO, I like it very much did not like.
\r
Moreover, not to transfer any document on Google Docs? But there is still LatTeX (a million times better than word and there is no compatibility issues). In short think twice before spending their money.
