There should be an image here!It is not really all that shocking to hear about people asking for MS Office with the Linux distro. After all, the docx formatting from MS Office to Open Office is awful at best, unusable at worst.

Perhaps however, this is indicative of a larger question that needs to be examined? What is the driving force here? Well based on my experience, it is the fact that so many people are finding themselves pinned up in a world where Docx is being forced onto them at work. And to cleanly work with the same document, it really means having access to the software that can best handle the task.

Open Office solutions are fantastic. Of this there is no question. But it should be noted that it only works where you are free of having to interact much with Docx. Thankfully, working from home, this has not really been a problem. Hopefully it will stay this way.
