Bill Kay: Hey I have a question. I have been looking at getting a chromebook for a
little bit now and there is only one thing holding me back.
As soon as I get the laptop, I will download Ubuntu like this with chrome
OS and use the LibreOffice as my primary word processor. I just downloaded
the program so that I could test it out and see if it is a word processor
that I could use everyday. It is. I can customize it so that it will
automatically save as a word document (this so I wont have an issue using
my school's computers) however I need to make sure that I will be able to
save as a word document on the chromebook.
So in short, my question is this: can I save documents as a word doc on a
chromebook running ubuntu?
