I'm pretty good at people and I know full and well that they don't have the
skill to change it to .doc or the patience for me to explain why. I'm like
an inverse human. Rather than adapting my environment to suit myself. I
expend most of my energy to adapt my practices to suit my environment. If I
get .docx files I generally either open it as it and roll the dice or find
a computer with a version of Office compatible.

Hi :)
I find it a total pita too.  Do you get blank looks from people when you
ask them to send in a different format?  Do you find people treat you with
suspicion or treat you as being deliberately difficult?  Do you get blamed
when their formats turn out to appear broken when viewed on any machine
other than their own?

When i installed MSO 2010 on the machines here i deliberately set it to
default to Doc instead of DocX but then felt guilty and worried i would get
the blame if anything happened so i set it back :(
Regards from
Tom :)
