The artilce that first brought this to my attention was How To Easily Install Microsoft Office 2007 On Linux Ok, it isn't native yet, and chances are the people migrating to LibreOffice won't be too happy, but and an alternative to using WINE directly, there is Play on Linux. Ok, so how is this different than WINE? While the Ubuntu installation does not list Lucid, the .list file exists, so the installation command, based on what it listed for other versions of Ubuntu, should be Code: sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_lucid.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install playonlinux May be something to try out. If anybody does try this out please bring it up at the Linux SIG meeting about your experience! I hope to try this out and see how it does but I have a much older version of Office (2000) and I would be interested in how a newer version works (even up to Office 2010!).
