If you are using Linux MSO is NOT an option because there is no Linux
version of MSO.

Stop assuming that someone has access to Windows or can afford to buy a
retail copy of MSO. Many LO users have limited finances and can not
afford to buy new software and possibly the hardware to run it.

He is perfectly right. Anyone wanting to work with one of the the most complicated file formats has to buy the one and only software that has been designed for that file format. Assuming that some open source code monkeys spend their lives to hack equivalent software for free is mere hybris.

MS is adding full ODF support in the next version of MSO

Dreams are free.

Deal with reality and shut up about using MSO formats.

Deal with reality and stop spreading MSO formats. All we need to do in respect to MSO formats is never writing any OOXML files. Simply send back your ready made documents as PDF which always looks exactly as displayed on your screen (File>Send>Document as PDF). If (and only if) collaboration on the same file is a requirement, then you send back the old binary file format (doc/xls/ppt) which is fully supported by MSO. There is not a single technical reason why any user of LibreOffice should export OOXML and I wish LibO would stop trying to write this pestilence of a file format.
