For those not keeping track, Codeweavers just announced Crossover 17.
They claim to support Microsoft Office 2016 for the first time.  If
you own a copy of
Office, you can download a time-limited copy of Crossover 17 and test out their
claims.   If you do, please post back here about your results as some
people I know
might want to do this, but I don't have a copy of Office 2016 to use
for testing purposes.
