Retard.

Go complain.
If the prof doesn't budge, go tell the department head.
If the assignment was strictly to submit in .docx and you failed to do so, you're out of luck.

Did she convert your shit successfully earlier in the semester? Did she ask for a certain file format? Why would you assume she can open anything beyond what your syllabus said was required?

If you could have send it in pdf, you are retarded.

If your teacher wanted you to send a .docx and you went full freetard anyway, both of you are retarded.

This is exactly why the business world doesn't use anything except MS office.

You're gonna fuck up some hundred thousand dollar deal simply because you were too cheap to spring for office.

Sure it works 99% of the time, but that 1% can cost you a lot of money, is the savings really worth it ? Probably not for most businesses.

Anon, Libre Office can save as .doc and .docx. Moreover, your school likely provides computers with Word on them if you don't want to install Word on your own computer. Why then, would you turn in a format that can only be opened with Libre Office?

I'd just like to interject for moment. What you're refering to as Linux, is in fact, GNU/Linux, or as I've recently taken to calling it, GNU plus Linux. Linux is not an operating system unto itself, but rather another free component of a fully functioning GNU system made useful by the GNU corelibs, shell utilities and vital system components comprising a full OS as defined by POSIX.

Many computer users run a modified version of the GNU system every day, without realizing it. Through a peculiar turn of events, the version of GNU which is widely used today is often called Linux, and many of its users are not aware that it is basically the GNU system, developed by the GNU Project.

There really is a Linux, and these people are using it, but it is just a part of the system they use. Linux is the kernel: the program in the system that allocates the machine's resources to the other programs that you run. The kernel is an essential part of an operating system, but useless by itself; it can only function in the context of a complete operating system. Linux is normally used in combination with the GNU operating system: the whole system is basically GNU with Linux added, or GNU/Linux. All the so-called Linux distributions are really distributions of GNU/Linux!

You've obviously never worked freelance. You're expected to have industry standard software and submit files that are compatible with what your employer has.

I am freelancing and writing a program for my client this fucking instant. Interrupted to answer you.

If you find the software requirements of your client is a pain in the ass, you reject that and search for another. Granted if clients are scarce we'll probably have to make do with some WinXP shenanigans, but nothing VMs won't solve.

What I was trying to say was more on the line of how I had to swallow down some old ass laptop with WinXP and Visual Studio 2008 on my old job, when I can at home be working on a capable computer with a multi-monitor setup, decent mech keyboard on Win10 and Visual Studio 2015 for example.
