Life is like a sewer. What you get out of it depends on what you put into it.

I have been able to open up "most" Powerpoint presentations with Open
Office here, but it isn't 100% perfect. OpenOffice seems to do a decent
job on M$ Office files. I have no problems at all on M$Word or Excel.
An alternative, if you have acess to the M$ Office suite, is to try the
Crossover Office program (a WINE derivitive). It will cost some $$,
while OpenOffice is "free". I understand Crossover Office does an
excellent job, though. I personally have NOT tried it here.
