The OpenXML Translator provides support for opening and saving Microsoft* OpenXML-formatted word processing documents (.docx) in OpenOffice.org. So now we all can use the docx extention *yay* although im not very happy about this, id rather have hundreds of companies use *.odf and do away with this addon all together but... This is hot for those that like to use Microsh!t document formats...
1. echo "deb http://ubuntu.org.ua/ getdeb/" >>/etc/apt/sources.list
2. apt-get update
3. apt-get install odf-converter
