AGAIN for the hundredths time: Because e-letter is perfectly right. Only MS
software can edit MS file formats simply because they tailor their file
format very tightly around their software. 
LibO can export to the old binary formats in acceptable quality so this is
the one and only acceptable file format for collaboration with MSOffice
users. For finished documents not supposed to be edited anymore, PDF is the
perfect solution.
OOXML export is a non-feature. As a matter of fact it does not work. LibO
may break OOXML documents. It will take many many more releases until it
works as well as export to doc/xls/ppt.

Anybody who is confronted with MS files on a daily basis needs at least one
machine with MSOffice installed.
Any other Windows box should have the free MS Viewers installed so you can
really see how the documents look like.

Stop propagating your wishful thinking and unproven sentiment. It does not
help anybody. This is just embarrassing and has nothing to do with end user
