It seems to work better than any Wine release I remember. I was able to install Word and Excel from the Office 97 CD. I haven't tried Powerpoint yet. But all I had to do was edit the tools/wineinstall script to change the prefix from /usr/local to /usr, and I was set. The funny thing is that Word 97 on Wine is about as responsive as OpenOffice 1.0.2, loads much faster, and has the envelope-printing feature I love that OO doesn't have. MS should be happy about Wine. :)

OO doesn't have the format painter either, which pisses me off. I'm really impressed with it otherwise.
