Crossover plugin is like a micro$oft office and you can use all those word/excel applications but in wine you can install all the windows apps and use it as if you are using them on window$. But catch is office suite doesn't work on wine for which you need crossever plugin. I really wanted to buy it for using with exchange server but read that they still have issue with those so waiting ...
I hope it is clear to you. ??

Crossover plugin allows you to install various palgins for your browser that were formerly available only on windows platform. For now you can enjoy viewing quicktime movies on the net, view .doc, .ppt and other MSOffice files on the net, you can play shockwave games, etc.
