In theory, if I can run it in FireFox, there should be no problem. Of course the devil is in the details. Has anyone tried this?

    ehm. Why don't you tell us? We don't have a license ;-) It is webbased so the OS should not matter. If Microsoft is so childish to check for the user-agent you can spoof that. – Rinzwind Oct 11 at 13:19

I have an Office 365 license for work, and it does indeed work from a Linux machine. (I didn't get the license by choice >.>)

The only difference is that if it's an Office for Business you have to go through your workplace's Sharepoint namespace rather than the online versions; however it will still function as normal.

Office 365 runs on my Ubuntu 18.04 via Firefox. Have 365 at work and can send & receive messages at home. Can also load & run Word & Excel at home. Not 100% functional but is doable. If you do not have access to 365, you would need to register with 365 and pay a fee to use it. It should still work with Linux & Firefox.
