It's compatibility,docx is a Microsoft's product .I know that it's possible to open it with Open office.You can use the Open XML Translator for Open Office to be able to read and edit docx files with Open Office.
And here's the online solution.

KOffice applications have problems with .docx files (can be opened, but no content is shown), but OpenOffice Writer has no problem with it: text and embedded images are all displayed properly.
