Microsoft Office Performance with Crossover
Hi all, I have been searching here and on Google but have not found the information I am looking for.
I have a copy of the windows version of Microsoft Office 2007 and was planning on installing it on my new 13" rMBP via Crossover as an alternative to using parallels. Questions I have before doing so:
1. How does Office perform through Crossover?
2. How would the software look on the retina screen? I.E. does it look bad/blurry as I doubt it is optimized for the higher resolution screen?
3. Would all functions of the software perform as it would in Windows? Such as Excel plug-ins, etc. Also, how does the installation of plug ins work?
Crossover sounds like a better option to me because I will not be using any other windows software and I would save a decent amount of space on the SSD (please correct me if this is not true).

For standalone apps, even some games, crossover works fairly well, but I imagine that office is expecting a lot more to be there than crossover can do a good job with. I would have to say if you are going to need office for PC you are much better off with parallels.
