Difference between spreadsheet formats that use ".xlsx"

In Calc (currently using 5.1.6), what is the difference between "Microsoft Excel spreadsheet 2007-2013" and "Office Open XML spreadsheet"? They both use the ".xlsx" extension.

And related to that: which one would be the "most compatible" with MS Office, i.e. the least likely to look different when sent to an Excel user, or the most "sustainable" solution (for data conservancy)?
