Will Microsoft Office run on Linux?

Can I get Microsoft Office to run on Linux?

As a 25-year computer professional, and a confessed Microsoft hater, let me...

As a 25-year computer professional, and a confessed Microsoft hater, let me give you a straight, admittedly unbiased answer. I have yet to see anything that even comes close to Office. I have switched entirely to Mac and Ubuntu at home, and paid for the Office 365 subscription because OpenOffice and LibreOffice are unstable, unreliable, and the MS Office compatibility is absolutely unusable. That's the answer as of 2014.

You can find out easily if application X will run on Wine at appdb.winehq.com. Then, search for your app under "Browse Apps". The page for your app will tell you whether it runs at all, how well it runs, and any special Windows DLLs or other workarounds you'll need to run it.
