vmware runs just fine in F9 - just updated my kernel-modules 
today as a new kernel came in. I run vmware-server and have 
multiple Windows vm's built for various things

I also have Office 2003 running on this machine, but with 
CrossoverOffice, albeit, a very old version from at least two 
years ago. But Excel runs fine - just tried. 

I am curious as to why you feel you need Office to be compatible 
with Word users. I have some people I support who are doing 
translation work, and get most of their documents in Word, some 
highly formatted and styled, but, they've never encountered one 
they couldn't open with OpenOffice - they do their work and save 
the translations back out as Word docs, and the clients are ne'er 
the wiser. 

I'm sure there are things that won't work, so that's why I'm 
asking - what sorts of things have you encountered that you can't 
handle with OO?
