... er, but isn't docx-converter.com an MS Windows program, not much
help on a Linux box.

... and OpenOffice.org 3 is still in beta I guess so isn't really an easy
option, i.e. a bit OTT for just opening a document. 

I think I'll just say that .docx files are even more unacceptable than
ordinary MS Word .doc files.
