Hi there, I have just installed CrossOver Linux Pro 7.1.0 on a system running Ubuntu 8.10 for x86.
This system is going to be the basis for a general use LiveUSB system, and also as a means of testing the waters for a full Linux migration. One of the prerequisites for the LiveUSB is the installation of MS Office 2007 for interns to use.
I have Crossover and Office 2007 installed already. However, as I understand it, the bottle containing Office 2007 is installed into my own home directory. I need it to be set up somewhere outside of the /home/user structure, so that any users of the LiveUSB system don't have to worry about logging in and not seeing Office. In essence, I need it installed to be accessible by any user.
Does anyone have any tips or ideas of how best to carry this out? I'd like to get a few more needed Windows apps installed into this bottle as well, and accessible in a similar fashion. Thanks!

We're rebels. We're misfits. But mostly, we're software liberators. And we're very, very good at what we do. We have to be. Lots of developers work with open source, but only a tiny fraction of those are good enough to get software that was designed for one platform to work on another one. We invented CrossOver software - a unique approach to cross-platform compatibility that does not require dual-boot or another OS license. We launched PortJump to help app and game developers broaden their market beyond Windows® users. And we launched ExecMode to help organizations solve really ugly technical challenges.
