Whether or not you have a copy of MSO, to communicate with other people
and companies it is frequently necessary to write .doc or .docx files.
Then you should buy m$o if receipt of m$ formats is mandatory.
Otherwise, what's wrong with despatch of both pdf (to view) and odt
(to promote LO)?

I can give you many examples. Here is one in my last post on this thread:

I'm applying for a job. The company insists that CVs are submitted in Word XP format. In this case there is no option but to comply. This requirement is by no means unusual, especially for bigger companies. If you aren't willing to conform, your application will be rejected. The CV won't be read 'just in case'. And yes, the insistence is generally perfectly reasonable because the HR recruitment system only works with Word XP documents.
