I like LibreOffice best. For me it is compatible with all the stuff I formerly did in MS Office, word, excel and access.

The latest version is very fast. Don't see any reason to go back to the MS stuff.

The one weakness all the Linux office suites I've tried have is that they can't open a Powerpoint presentation file with an embedded media file. Not even the latest version of Softmaker Office can do it.

Thankfully it's something I don't need to do at the moment, so I'm not overly concerned about it.

Will MS Office97 Pro work with wine?
I seem to recall being able to use Word from it with wine.

And I have to agree that embedded stuff in a PowerPoint file does not work correctly in libreoffice.

Yet another reason for me to try MS Office97 Pro with wine just to see.

You said what I meant to say - they can open the Powerpoint file, but they can't play any media files inside. I'll try to be clearer in future. I don't know the answer to the Office97 question.
