This is something that has been raised in the past on other platforms: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/msoffice/forum/all/office-365-on-linux/262e3066-a71e-4af7-9600-af9f8d0746b6

Opening it again here as it would be really nice to have linux native versions of Word, Excel, Outlook etc. More and more MS software is getting ported to Linux at the moment: Teams, VSCode, MSSQL etc.

We're standarised on MSOffice here in work, but linux is much smoother for website development. I'm currently running software through wsl, but that is slow. Would be lovely to use Fedora or Ubuntu and be able to use Office365 on there on the odd occaisions I use them.

Yes, if you're paying for Office 365 subscription, it's a good idea to be able to access it from any device and any OS.

We have the Linux subsystem and can install Linux on vm in Azure.  Native apps would be great.

What do you guys think about the open-source web wrapper tools like unofficial-webapp-office or Office365WebDesktop (link below) as lightweight stop-gap solutions?

Still need this! Especially OneNote since it is the only application of its kind - no other note taking app has the same capabilities. Honestly, the other Office apps are easily replaced but OneNote is in a league of its own.

Agree on this, excel and powerpoint webapps miss some important features.
