    Yes, I know of it. I currently use it from AUR. I use CrossOver specifically and only for Office 365 (that and support Wine development). I saw that Bottles does have a winecx build in their list of runners, but I haven't seen an Installer for Office yet, so while in theory I could use Bottles, I'm currently sticking with CrossOver for this specific usecase.

    Or just give up and run Office 365 via CrossOver. There's apparently a way to get it working with PoL for free, but with my distro-hopping ways and the fact that I need to do it for work (instead of for fun) I have no patience for that. Plus, it feels good to donate for Wine/Proton development anyways and even better if I have an actual use for it.

    For Office, the option currently is either use CrossOver (which is paid, though it can be cheaper with discounts) to install Office or to use a fairly lengthy process to follow the process CrossOver does manually. While I'm currently pinning my hope on Bottles Installer, for now WPS Office mostly works fine as long as you don't work with macros.
