"Today I thought I would show everyone just how easy it is to install and use Microsoft Office 2007 on OpenSolaris 2009.06 and 2010.03 with Bordeaux for Solaris. I have installed Office 2007 on both OpenSolaris 2009.06 and 2010.03 build 134 the screenshots below are from 2009.06 running in Virtual Box.

"The first thing you will need to do is make sure you have all the needed software dependencies resolved on OpenSolaris. Here is the list of needed packages from the Bordeaux OpenSolaris 2.0.2 readme.

"Bordeaux bundles Wine 1.1.36 and uses many third party libraries that can be found in the OpenSolaris repository and the Contrib repository. Information on how to add the Contrib repository can be found here : http://wikis.sun.com/display/OpenSolarisInfo/How+To+Add+IPS+Repositories"
