It works for me when I don't delete the x.
OpenOffice...like I said before...was working on compatibility with
docx. Changing the extension doesn't change the format...if you take a
.doc file and change it to a .txt does OO still open it properly?
Probably due to the way it's trying to actually pull what the format is
instead of relying on extension, but that's just a guess.
Others have commented on the list that they have trouble with
compatibility or some documents don't work. I've been opening docx
documents for a couple months with OO.o on Hardy.
