Debian Running Microsoft Office

[ from the just-for-fun-honest dept. ]

I am preparing some machines for a schools demonstration of using Debian GNU/Linux and Linux in general. Although the point is about
Microsoft alternatives, Free Software and so forth, one cannot resist the temptation to show more twisted things like this shot of Microsoft Word and Microsoft Powerpoint running under WINE within a KDE environment just for fun. Also pictured is Sun Star Office which is being demonstrated along with Open Office. I may eventually produce some (non-Powerpoint!) slides to completement what I will be demonstrating this weekend.

For more details on the potential uses of GNU/Linux in education, there are a number of websites online. I would very much like to see Universities such as Nottingham try this Free technology as an alternative or as a step towards removing the Microsoft infection.
