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

      <p>Many Linux users have to dual-boot Windows and a Linux flavor
        simply because they need one or two Windows programs that are
        crucial to their work etc.  Don't think of this as a failure to
