CrossOver Office allows you to install your favorite Windows productivityapplications and plugins in Linux, without needing a Microsoft OperatingSystem license. CrossOver includes an easy to use, single click interface,which makes installing a Windows application simple and fast.
Once installed, your application will integrate directly withyour Gnome or KDE environment. Just click and run your application,exactly as you would in Windows, but with the full freedom of Linux.
CrossOver Office lets you use many Windows plugins directly from your Linux browser.Plugin works on any x86 based Linux distribution and will integrate with most browsers including Netscape 4.x, Netscape 6.x, Konqueror, Mozilla, Galeon and Opera. Plugin also integrates with Gnome and KDE to let you transparently open any Word, Excel or PowerPoint file. But even better, you can open these attachment types directly from any mail client. Because Plugin uses the native Windows plugins, you get the best compatibility possible. For instance this is the only 'QuickTime on Linux' solution that supports the Sorenson movie format used by most sites.
