Sure, those of us who have an OLE server, and who run IE. Which
restricts the document to Microsoft users, who, for some strange
reason, don't have to buy PowerPoint to see the presentation. Mac,
BeOS and *nix users need not apply.

I understand the use of PowerPoint in a presentation, where the
audience is not required to deal with the format. Apart from that use
of proprietary (linked to a single platform or application) formats is
to be avoided, if the maximum possible audience is to be targeted.
