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).
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
