First the good news:
I did all the updates then I fought through all of the hurdles to get Office 2016 installed. For me these were logging into my Office.com account from my browser, telling my browser to use a IE9 user agent, downloading the installer .exe to disk, then going through the normal Crossover process to install Office 2016 into a new bottle. This seemed to work well and I was able to fire up Word, Excel etc to register them online./
Now the BAD news:
1) When I load a spreadsheet Excel is SOOOOOO slow to respond to any input (5 seconds to recognise a character has been typed into a cell)
2) Word is slightly better at maybe 2-3 seconds to recognise any typing
3) When I run TOP I see that any Office program immediately takes 100% of the CPU
I am running Crossover 17.10 on Ubuntu 16.04LTS (the Ubuntu upgrade to 17.10 killed my other machine so I am hanging on to 16.04 for now), Thinkpad X220 with 4GB RAM and 500GB disk. Crossover continues to work absolutely fine with my old Office 2007 bottle.
I don't know where else to go now to resolve these issues.
