ms office files .doc .docx app

hi

i've been searching for ages for a decent ereader and at the moment im considering alex or boox. however the deal breaker for me is MS Office native readability. it seems that the boox can run various linux apps so i was wondering if anyone knew if there was one that could read MS office docs?

if this is possible then the boox looks like a purchase as the alex doesnt have a handwriting option so i cant use it instead of paper to make notes etc.

thanks for any advice.
