Re: Windows comaptibilty issue

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.

The Document Foundation just released version 5.3.3 which has improvements to docx file compatibility according to the release notes.
