Open File Formats

I still have State "agency" people send out MSO 2010 or 2013 Word 
.docx files to other agency people who still have MSO 2007 and did
not have the budget to buy 2010 or 2013.  They still cannot
understand that there is a limited backwards compatibility to the
.docx formatted files between the newer to the older MSO packages.
If, they were using a package that saved these documents in ODF [or
even .doc for Word] then they would not have these troubles.

Interestingly, during the installation of MS Office 2010 and 2013/365,
you are now asked whether you want tthe default document type to be
ODF or MS Office format...
So either the use of ODF is becoming much more common, or it's the
usual Embrace, Extend and Extinguish ploy from MS (Me, Cynical?)
