Does it need to be 2013? It doesn't seem to work to well, looking at other people's results: ... &iId=26323
2007 works quite well, if that's a viable alternative for you. It even has a step-by-step installation available in playonlinux (kind of a front-end/manager for wine installs).

Hi there, most of your open source office suites have compatible files type saves that are work with MS office. So if it's possibly the concern of file conversion for say taking files to/from work/home being Wind/Linux its probably not a big deal. These seem to work better in the native operating system rather than trying to force one into the other. I recommend you try one of the popular ones like Libre, Abi, Calligra, KOffice, Openoffice, etc. If it's the interface you don't want to have to relearn or transition back and forth take a look at something like this :D. Of course if it is a must you can try wine as mentioned before but also if it is problematic you can run windows with MSoffice in a virtual box inside linux.

Linux Mint 14, Cinnamon
