You should never generate XLSX files with LibreOffice, unless you need
to exchange them with MS Office users. In this case, you must save the
file in ODS format (more stable), and use XLSX only for
interoperability. With MS Office 2013 users, you can use ODS files.

In fact LibreOffice should not offer to store OOXML for 2 reasons:

1) LO is not ready yet. It may produce very disappointing results or
even lose data (although I don't believe in this subject line).
2) Every single OOXML file strengthens the position of the enemy who
introduced OOXML for the only reason to fight our ODF standard.

Microsoft Office fully supports the old doc/xls/ppt format. LibreOffice
supports these file formats very well. So this is _the_ exchange format
if (and only if) collaboration with MS Office users is required.
Otherwise PDF is the way to go.

Since rescent versions of MS Office do support our ODF formats, we
should confront their customers as often as possible with our format to
turn the tables on them.
