who running WPS office (Ms. Office Like) in Linux

Dear all,
WPS Office from KingSoft is a damn good office application, small and almost functioning same like Ms. Office 2003. We can download and use it free in Windows (Chinese limited edition only).

Now, the problem is I want to run it inside Linux (it need profesional edition) but it cost money. So, I would like to ask anybody run limited edition in Linux successfully?

You can try the software (windows chinese limited edition only) at
