I remember using a program that seemed to nab window contents from Win98 (running on the PC card) and stick it in a RISC OS window on the desktop. Result was that to the end user you were using Word/Excel on RISC OS.

It was clunky and slow (mostly due to the speed of the PC Card I think) and I preferred all the ROS apps anyway - but when I had to do a course at Uni that specifically required Excel - it did the trick.

Now a similar thing that could grab contents from the host OS (say Linux) and move it into a ROS window on VRPC (or ROOL's hopefully-not vaporware emu) - That would really hit the mark.
