Unhappy [ubuntu 9.04] Office 2007 installing problem

So, I'm new here and if this post shoulden't be here please move it!

Hi, im having problem with Office 2007, I install wine(newest 1.1.22) and winetricks with it. And when I start the instalation it seams ok, I enter a serial number, accept terms, everything it demand and there is the problem, I set all parametars for install(borring next, next) and I get a windows error(don't send error)...

Hi Alek

I use crossover linux. word, excel, and powerpoint all work most of the time.
Crossover is wine based and you can get tech support for a year after purchase.
If you dont really need office 07 then stick with open office. I end up there
on a regular basis.

Thanks Vanessa,

I really appreciate this...

[update] I also try with "play on linux" and here i see progress, office is starting the instalation, and when it's near end, it stop and say some microsoft office error, not annoying windows "don't send error"... I'll try crossover too...

Once more, thank you Vanessa...

P.s I'm using open office, I just curiously wanna see how would work office in ubuntu , but I was stoped by some error... ... Nevermind, if anyone know how to resolve this problem ok, if no one knows its ok too, I'm pleased with this answer...
