Well, here's a chance to put your money where your mouth is. :)
Caldera have already released Wabi for Linux, and I am posting this
message from a Linux box with Wabi running right now. As I speak, I
have got a Program Manager icon just to the right of my emacs window.

Check out Wabi is $199 and it works --- I'm running
Office 4.3 on it.
