Interesting blog on OpenOffice.org and MS Office issues in general, but also comes up with a hint to improve docx. conversion for use in OpenOffice.org. (Native built-in conversion in OpenOffice.org is not yet fully mature and sometimes leads to data loss and an altered look of your imported docx document).
odf-converter-integrator is an easy way to open Microsoft Office 2007 files (also called Office Open XML, .docx, .xlsx, and .pptx) with a high-quality conversion on any Linux or Windows system in any OpenOffice.org.
odf-converter-integrator uses the high-quality odf-converter code (which converts between Office Open XML and OpenDocument) as packaged by Novell and integrates it into the operating system. That means when you click on a .docx/.xlsx/.pptx file on a web page, in an email attachment, or your desktop, odf-converter-integrator springs into action, converts the .docx/.xlsx/.pptx to an .odt/.ods/.odp, and then automatically opens the new document in OpenOffice.org, StarOffice, Abiword, KWord, Gnumeric, Microsoft Office 2003, or whatever is your default ODF editor.
odf-converter-integrator is simply a little glue to overcome the integration limitation of the Novell odf-converter, which cannot integrate into most editions of OpenOffice.org (such as the vanilla/Sun Microsystems edition, Fedora, OxygenOffice, and others).
Out of the box OpenOffice.org version 3 opens Microsoft Office 2007 documents, but often odf-converter-integrator converts with better quality. See the article "A better .docx converter" for details. http://katana.oooninja.com/w/odf-converter-integrator
