Most of our computers today have 64 bit support capability and surely we want to utilize it to make use of those extra GB of RAM. Even with my deep love of beautiful Linux desktops, I can’t deny that I still need to use Microsoft Office. I’m already used to it, I know my way around it and there is no need for fear of document incompatibility when opening it in other computers (mostly MS. Windows of course).
This time I’m writing the step-by-step guide for installing 32 bit version of Microsoft Office in 64 bit Linux. For this guide, I’m using elementary OS luna which is based on Ubuntu Precise (12.04 LTS). Please feel free to adapt it to your favorite distro.
