FWIW, I use Libreoffice whenever someone in the MS Windows world sends 
me a document
in .doc or .docx format. So far I've had no problems with sending them 
back documents made
by Libreoffice and exported into docx (which actually tends to shorten 
the file length compared
to Libreoffice's native format).

Still, I vastly prefer writing in TeX.
