  • The only feature I like in word is good blogging with wordpress, I did not find good client in ubuntu(Trust me all try almost all of them), and all I have to do go into windows/MAC for my blogging and that is not possible as all of my development is in Ubuntu. Any solution? – CodeDCode Sep 20 '14 at 2:10

It is not possible because we don't have any good compatibility layer that supports MAC OS X programs well. The closest, and only one would be Darling. Sadly, it can only run basic hello world programs. WINE does support Windows programs well, but not MAC OS X programs. So if you have the Windows version. You can run it in WINE.


As Andrew already answered correctly: "It is not possible!"

You can use the following Office derivatives, which are all Linux-compatible and not to bad in comparison to Microsoft Office:
