CrossOver is an improved version of Wine that brings professional and technical support to Wine. But unlike Wine, CrossOver is not free. You’ll have to purchase the yearly license for it.
The good thing about CrossOver is that every purchase contributes to Wine developers and that in fact boosts the development of Wine to support more Windows games and applications. If you can afford about $10 a year, you should buy CrossOver for the support they provide.
With Crossover you have the ability to Run Microsoft Office either as a standalone application or via Office 365.
Most office applications run very well. I would say that Office 2010 is the best when it comes to performance of office applications.
You also have the ability to run different versions of office at the same time.
