​While the initial statement is exaggerated, moving a file between two
computers using the same version of MSO can produce different results, with
no obvious reasons. Of course after digging enough an explanation can be
found, but I've seen it happen often enough to be noticeable. This was in
the beginning of the docx format, but I would not be surprised if things
didn't change much in it's ~10 years of existence.
