PlayOnLinux isn't dependent on crossover. I think it can also be together with crossover on one OS.

Yeah, you can use both at the same time without issues. Same goes for Cedega and basic WINE install.

Exactly what I needed to know - thanks (but will try MS Office in POL first, since it is one of the default installs and runs my other needed Windows sw flawlessly so far).

It should work, depending on the version of Office. So far, I see OneNote and Outlook fail, but everything else should install fine. If not, be sure to post in the forums according to the rules and stickies, and we will give you a hand. :)

I honestly think Crossover and PlayOnLinux do the exact same thing. They use Wine in a wineprefix and install Windows dependencies so your games and programs can run.
My favorite thing about PlayOnLinux is that its totally free!

I tried Crossover last Christmas when they offered a release for free.
I really didn't see anything special that PlayOnLinux didn't already offer.

I have had sooooooo much success with PlayOnLinux, I'm not going anywhere else.

They do. Crossover just uses wine builds that we dont get. Thats the only difference that I saw.

better updates from Wine could make all the difference in a specific game! Grrr
