I recently bought a new laptop running Ubuntu 8.04. I installed Microsoft Office XP, but when I try to run any of the installed applications the dialog box below appears:
With Word and Excel, clicking the Debug button shuts down the application; with PowerPoint, I can actually use the app after clicking Debug.
I had Crossover Linux and Office XP installed on my old laptop. The main differences are that the old laptop ran Xubuntu 8.04, and the new laptop has a 64-bit Core 2 Duo processor (the old one had a 32-bit processor).

CrossOver Forums: the place to discuss running Windows applications on Mac and Linux
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.
