I would also like the ability to write to docx. Even if Ooo do have all the features I've missed I think I'll with with the upgrade untill 3.0.1 in december.


Compare apples with apples. Did you realise that the inverse situation is worse? With Office 2007, not only do you not get the ability to write OpenOffice format (Opendocument) .. but you do not even get the ability to read OpenOffice format files.

At least with OpenOffice, you get the ability to read .docx files.

With OpenOffice, you also get the ability to produce and import PDF files.

Also, with OpenOffice, the support for reading and writing files compatible with Microsoft legacy formats is arguably better than the support for this same ability in Office 2007.
