Windows apps on Linux the CrossOver way

Posted by: Anonymous [ip:] on August 14, 2008 02:02 PM
Supporting the standard MS Office stuff is great, but I can usually get away with Open Office for documents, spreadsheets, and presentations. Hell, in many ways, I like their interfaces and output better.

But as a geek moving in to management and the architecture side of things, two apps have pushed me to XP at work: Visio and MS Project. They're both so far ahead of their open source equivalents that it's not even funny. It's not even an interoperability problem - I end up exporting to common read-only formats most of the time, anyway. But Dia and Gnome Planner just don't cut it for creating complicated diagrams or project plans.

Too bad Crossover only "kinda" supports them.
