Linux servers to host Office

CodeWeavers have introduced a new software that will allow Linux servers to host Microsoft Office and other Windows productivity applications, which can then be accessed through a Web browser. This combination allows administrators to set up a Linux server running applications like Word and Outlook, which can be made accessible to Linux or Unix users without any special client software. CodeWeavers' software is based on Wine (Windows Emulator), which creates a Windows compatibility layer on top of Linux and Unix operating systems. CodeWeavers has previously sold Windows-emulation software for Linux clients, but has not ventured into the server market until now.
