Hi,

Which Linux distro do you use and which office software do you want?

I'm not sure why you posted your system specifications. My question related to software. Do you have Linux installed on your computer?

There is libreoffice, an awesome office alternative that allows you to save in even the most recent office .docx formats as well as work with pretty much any document from any other office software.

 

http://www.libreoffice.org/download/libreoffice-fresh/?type=mac-x86&version=4.3&lang=en-US

 

Depending on who you're sending the documents to, you might want to consider:

1. Open The Program

2. Click On Tools

3. Click on The Plus Symbol beside "Load and Save"

4. Click On General

5. Over on the right where it says document type, select whatever you want

6. In the always save as, you can change it Microsoft Word 2007/2010/2013 XML

7. Uncheck the "Warn when not saving in ODF or default format

 

This way, everytime you type up a document, it will save in .docx which can help especially in an office or school where you need to submit a document.

Now if you used Linux instead, you would probably already have LibreOffice, and if you didn't you could download it from the Linux software repositories. :)

You may wish to ask this question in the Mac section of the forum.  :)

 

I don't know if there a native Apple branded Office for Mac (there likely is), but do know there's a way to post MS Office over to use. However never have used a Mac, so can't really provide details. If you use MS Office though, it'll cost between $100 & $350, depending on which version is needed. 

 

Not sure if LibreOffice can run on Mac, they like to charge for everything. 

 

Good Luck, whatever the outcome.  :thumbup2:
