The .docx format…

So this format (.docx) which was recently added to the long list of possible document format’s used by MS Office, has become a real pain for Linux and Windows users alike.

MS Office 2007 will by default save your documents into .docx format which is a useless format outside of MS Office 2007 – at least useless unless you do some tweaking to your system.

For those using MS Office 2003, 2000, XP and OpenOffice, you will be happy to know that you can open the infamous .docx files.

For MS Office users go HERE
For OpenOffice users go HERE

For those who are producing .docx files, please stop doing so! It makes life hard for the rest of us who don’t have the cash to buy MS Office 2007 or who wish not to pirate software. Please change your default file type to .doc or .rtf.

Thanks
