Comment: Re:Office on linux? Not natively. (Score 4, Insightful) 300

by jauren (#15948206) Attached to: Stuart Cohen Predicts Office for Linux
Actually, IIRC, the Mac OS version of Office is really more or less a separate product. They don't share much of a codebase at all (according to something I read long ago that I can no longer attribute or back up).

If there were ever to be an Office on Linux, my money would be on it being a port from the OS X Office, not the Win32 Office. I don't know which OS X API they've used, but such a port would still have at least some aspects of a simple Unix-to-Unix port.

All great ideas are controversial, or have been at one time.

Working...
