I'm not really sure but I think OpenOffice can open .docx files.

Or you could just download and install this.

It's free and takes a few minutes to install.

Basically that, every school I've been to is still using Windows XP, when they teach computer classes everything they're teaching will only work on Windows XP, I've tried to suggest to them that they should update their computers, the computers are slow and sluggish,..


Back in my day we had to complete our homework on 90s beige boxes running Windows 98 that would blue screen even if ya looked at it funny.

And you had to walk uphill both ways to and from the classroom (which was just a repurposed jail cell).

I would have preferred you quoting the Birds "Turn, Turn, Turn", but I guess this works (slightly less than) well.
