Download MS Word to Linux Notebook

Copper Contributor

Hey there!

I hope I entered the right community hub and I have a pretty difficult problem. I have access to MS 365 online (the version you have to pay for) via college. I currently work on an assignment and I discovered, that even though I do not have the free online access to word, it still has very limited possibilities compared to the local desktop version. I read online, that it is possible to download word to my local and offline workspace onto my notebook. There unfortunately the problem shows up, because my notebook runs on arch linux. Is it still possible to download the online version or do I have to purchase a separate MS word license? Thank you for your help! 

Best regards, Christina

To my understanding, office application do not support Linux OS yet but web:
