Telling folks that Wine runs most Windows apps is counter to your second statement -- a statement with which I strongly agree. I'm a strong supporter of the Ubuntu forums and regularly tell folks to quit treating it like a FREE version of Windows and learn how to use Linux apps.

Regarding Office, you're right -- but realize that you're using an Office version that is 6 years old! Most posts I see these days ask about using Office 2010 (which doesn't work as well) or Office 2013 (which doesn't work at all).
