    Windows comaptibilty issue

    I have made some word docs and given it a friend. Everytime he gives me back he complains that all documents were not visible. Also after returning the pen drive thunar does not shows the icon of libreoffice writer for files. The files are named abc-12.docx. what can fix these?

    depends which version of MS Office he is using. Since you are already saving as Word 2007-2013 *docx, try 97-2003 *.doc instead

    In place of libreoffice, install wps. Its free for Linuxers. It's one limitation is that it does not do hyphenation.
    LibreOffice, they say, is going to have the ribbon interface. Take it from when it comes out.
