For what it is worth, tired of fumbling endlessly with
the 03 viewers from Microsoft, I just installed the MS-Office 97
viewers for excel, powerpoint and word on my wine computer. Did
not take one minute for each install.
And I have yet to find a .doc, .xls or .ppt that they cannot
display in "the correct Microsoft Way" ;-)
This, in combination with OOorg 2.3 offers the possibility to do
anything office related in Linux, at least for me. ;-)
