    Not having M$ office is biggest thing holding back Linux form becoming mainstream.

    There's allot more to it than just that. You are way over-simplifying the situation.

    [gloworange]My question is, why would I want to screw up an otherwise nice install of Linux by putting M$ products on it?[/gloworange]

    Well KorpDeath, if some1 want to install Linux and have M$ Office too(because he/she has that for years), then Cross OverOffice is the solution.
