[TriLUG] Crossover Office runs Office2K very well.

One thing to keep in mind, if you read the ELUA from Microsoft for the
respective Office product, by using CrossoverOffice, you are breaking the
ELUA. In a nutshell, for Office 2000, it specifically states that you are
not to use the software on any operating system other than Windows 98,
Windows ME, Windows NT4, or Windows 2000 (XP wasn't out yet). Add Windows XP
to the list for Office XP. This means that folks with Windows 95 had to
upgrade to one of the above just to install it "legally".
Sorry for the "legal-eese", but it's part of my job to keep M$ licensing
working correctly here.

Actually, this is a very good point. It reminds me a lot of the OS/2
"wars." Everytime M$ came out with a new product it broke Win-OS/2 and
M$ would say -- oops! We didn't realize that doesn't work anymore. So
sorry. Oh well, we never supported that anyway.
