How To Easily Access The Microsoft Online Applications (Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, etc) On Ubuntu, Debian And Derivative Systems

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the Microsoft Online Apps is an open-source unofficial project that allows the users to easily use the Microsoft Online applications: Microsoft People, Microsoft OneNote, Microsoft OneDrive, Microsoft PowerPoint, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Calendar, Microsoft Excel and Microsoft Outlook.

The deb package contains .desktop files (shortcuts) structured in directories and categories, for opening the needed Microsoft online applications, in the default internet browser. For example, the Microsoft Word desktop file launches this command: xdg-open ‘https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx’, and opens the Microsoft Word Online App in the internet browser.

Being packed as a deb package, Microsoft Online Apps is available for all the Linux systems using deb packages.
