Hello,

In Linux Microsoft Office files are stored in the formats that they bear in Windows. That is *.doc, .*dot, *.odt and so forth for MS Word documents  and *.ppt, *.pot,*.odp and so forth for Microsoft PowerPoint documents. Note that I have given just a few examples of formats and also MS Office applications. Personally I use MS Office on opensuse Linux and it gives me the full functionality as it does in Windows. So if you are using MS Office in whichever Linux distribution I believe it should offer the same functionality.

Hope this helps.

Regards,

Alphae.

I think there would be no difference with the file formats supported by Microsoft Office whether you are using Microsoft Windows, Linux Ubuntu, Mac OS X, and others. The format of the files supported by the software would just be the same. If you can open a document file that uses a file extension “.doc” with Microsoft Office Word Enterprise 2007 on your computer running on Microsoft Windows XP Professional Service Pack 3, then you can also open a file with that same extension on your Ubuntu computer.

The supported file formats of the software are fixed on all supported operating systems and can’t be changed.
