I was using it to test a web page I am creating. It must be able to work with IE correctly.

I, too, have IE 6 installed on my Debian system. Being a web developer, IE is one of those things you have to have. I also have the Macromedia Studio and Adobe Photoshop installed as well.

How the heck did you get photoshop on there? Using wine?

Crossover Office Pro 5, costed me like $70 USD. I thought about upgrading to the new 6.1, but I dont see a need since my 5.0 is working just fine.

Opera is a must as well, if it doesn't work nicely with Opera then your code needs some work

As a matter of fact, yes. I have a cracked copy that I started off with, but I like the software so much I decided to contribute and bought a copy.

Opera is not a must in my eyes seeing that only about 1.5% of the internet viewing world uses it. Don't get me wrong, I still make my sites work in it, it's just I don't see it as a must. IE and FF are my musts. Everything else takes a backseat, but all my sites I build are tested in IE5, IE6, IE7, FF, FF2, Safari, Safari 2, Konqueror, Epiphany, Mozilla, Opera7, Opera8, and lynx (if it works in lynx, it will work on any device, including cell phones) on Windows, Linux, and OS X (canadian friend does os x testing since I do not own a mac).

I'm all for OSS and free software, yeah. But when something as good as Crossover Office comes along, they deserve to get something for their hard work. I can only imagine how hard it was to get windows binaries running on linux (much nicer than WINE ever thought about doing).

you miss under stood me. If it doesn't work with opera then the others browsers probably wont work nicely with the code as well. So it is best to see if opera works with it first
