I can't speak for all colleges but all the ones I know (either going myself or know people who went) pretty much expects a .doc(x) for all submitted papers. I've not met a single person who used LaTeX or similar to do papers in school and that includes people who have gone for master's degrees in science (as in actual science not just MS degree that covers just about any sorta tech subject here).
Did you use "track changes" in a .doc file?
WINE sucks. What I do when I really need an MS Office document is to fire up XP in VirtualBox. But once you get 'round the quirks of LibreOffice's export filters (i.e. use .doc or .rtf instead of .docx, never ever use track changes, kiss your footnote formatting goodbye) that's only in the very few cases where, at the same time, formatting is important and PDFs are not accepted.Can't you also install Office through WINE? Or is that outdated? (haven't been in Linux for some time).
Rick, try saving it as an .odt and opening that in Word (yes, it has .odt support, surprisingly enough).
It's a plug-in one needs to dl IIRC, might not be able to do it from the lab
The whole idea of upgrading to sid was that with wheezy already being in the Release Candidate phase I felt too far away from the bleeding edge running testing.I know Debian really sux in that regard.
