The only sure-fire way I know of is to run Windows Terminal Server and access it from linux using the rdesktop command.  Of course Microsoft expects you to pay a license fee based on how many users you claim will be connecting to the terminal server...

You can try wine, or you can try a free trial of Crossover Office at http://www.codeweavers.com/

Subject: [K12OSN] Making K12LTSP "school friendly"

I LOVE K12LTSP!  I have used it to successfully add 4<br>"new" classroom computer labs to my small, rural<br>school district, using old and donated hardware (but<br>new servers).  I LOVE that my students can login<br>anywhere and have all their files and even their<br>customized desktop follow them.  But... (you knew it<br>was coming, right?)<br><br>In most schools, we use so much "edutainment" software<br>that is M$ only.  My teachers have programs like<br>"Oregon Trail" and "Reader Rabbit" and "Jumpstart<br>Math" and "Kidspiration/Inspiration".  IF there was a<br>way to run this software on the Linux server using<br>wine and make it available to all the users, THEN<br>K12LTSP would be the biggest, best solution for<br>schools - ever (well at least for elementary/middle<br>schools).<br><br>Has anyone successfully installed these types of<br>"edutainment" apps on their servers and made them<br>available to all the users?  If so, HOW?<br><br>I think making something like this!
 "easy" to do, would<br>catapult K12LTSP and Open Source over the edge for<br>many  school districts.<br><br>__________________________________________________<br>Do You Yahoo!?<br>Tired of spam?
