There are some rumours on other newsgroups that Microsoft or a company
called Mainsoft is in the process of porting Microsoft Office to Linux.
there is even supposed to be an alpha version!

Wouldn't it be cool if Bentley upgraded the Linux version?
With Microstation, Office and mysql  running on Linux, I bet even
Intergraph could get their PDS application on it.

Now that'll be the day...

Hope a Bentley guy is looking :-)

Anyone know where I can buy shares in RedHat ?)
