Linux powered netbook with MS Office?
I've come to enjoy the Linux operating system and its philosophy. I am also thinking about purchasing a netbook due to its high portability, minimalist approach, and affordable price. However, I am uncertain as to the feasibility of having access to MS Office apps (primarily PowerPoint) on a Linux powered netbook. I need the Office apps for my work.
Can anyone recommend any products/solutions for running MS Office on a Linux netbook before I take the plunge and buy one? I am familiar with Wine on desktops but I don't know if something similar exists for netbooks. Are there known issues with having WinXP (or WIn7) and Linux installed on the same netbook harddrive?
One last question for netbook users. Do Linux powered netbooks often have difficulties with projectors? I give presentations often and do not have time to troubleshoot problems between computer and projector, so this is important as well.
Thanks for all of the help.
