Hi, I'm in college and all the professors say I need Microsoft Office 2010 and I believe that the file format is .docx, now if I send them a .doc file from open office, will they be able to open it? Or can I save my documents in .docx format so they can open my documents? I guess the overall question is can they open my documents with Microsoft Office 2010. I appreciate your feedback, thanks!

They should be able to open a .doc file format, and if they send you a .docx file, you should be able to open it.

I don't know if the newest version of OpenOffice.org. can save .docx files, but the new LibreOffice can save .docx files.

Neither the latest stable OOo 3.3 nor the latest developer build of OOo 3.4 can save to docx. As for LO, its export to docx is horrible, and I recommend against it. Better save to doc (MSO 2010 will open such files). If you really need export to docx, use odf converter [1] via command line or via integrator [2], it produces much better results as compared to LO.
