I like Linux a lot. I'd switch back to it on my laptop if I could use MS products on it. I use Outlook and OneDrive extensively between my three machines because it syncs so well, but Google tells me they're not really supported. My laptop is primarily used for school. LibreOffice doesn't support Mendeley (it says it does, but it doesn't) and my degree uses APA which is an absolute nightmare to format in LibreOffice, but a breeze in MSO.

Microsoft is really good at software but shit at operating systems.

You might be interested in Codeweavers Crossover office. I used it several years ago for a project, and it was quite impressive. Granted, that was quite some time ago so it may be nowhere near as good now, but it left an impression on me that's lasted that long, so you may want to give it a shot to try to run Word on Linux. Failing that, you might consider VirtualBox, which is actually pretty darn good.

Just a few options you might consider.

I'd heard of Crossover. It's $60 but from what I've read it seems to be pretty awesome. And I will look into VirtualBox, thanks!
