Hands on: SoftMaker Office 2010 for Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, the SoftMaker Office applications 
| appear to have similar functionality to their 
| Microsoft counterparts in Office versions 
| prior to 2007, and many of the functions are 
| found in the same place and have similar 
| options, so users should have no difficulty 
| getting to grips with TextMaker, PlanMaker and 
| SoftMaker Presentations.
| 
| Although I only had time for a brief 
| evaluation of SoftMaker Office 2010, it looks 
| impressive and is definitely worth trying out 
| if you are a Linux user looking for a decent 
| equivalent to Microsoft Office.

CrossOver 9.0 Linux [Review] Part 2: The CrossOver Experience

,----[ Quote ]
| Wine and CrossOver are brilliant products once 
| you accept the flaws as part of the package, 
| and consider it more a product to ease 
| migration to Linux than an instant replacement 
| for Windows. There will be pains, as users 
| switching from Windows to Linux + CrossOver 
| will surely need to adjust to Linux, CrossOver 
| won't help there. It can however let you make 
| the best of old software licenses, which might 
| have been preventing a full migration to 
| Linux, and let you use Office 2007 in case 
| OpenOffice does not suit your needs.

SoftMaker Office 2008 focuses on compatibility with Microsoft Office

,----[ Quote ]
| Softmaker Office 2008 for Linux offers good compatibility with the
| proprietary Microsoft Office formats. However, unlike OpenOffice.org,
| SoftMaker lacks macros, doesn't do OLE, and only supports the Open Document
| Format in its word processor.
