Hi People

If anyone who is using Linux, but want to get back to Windows for the use of Spreadsheet' and Powerpoints (for example), You can use Openoffice ...

This is the download page...

http://www.openoffice.org/dev_docs/source/download.html

And this is the home page..

http://www.openoffice.org/

This is a freeware and u can download it depending ont the distro.... and Installation is way too cool... absolutely no problems

U can make a local installation or a network installation too... U can find details in the manuals and the home page......

And it works like a charm....

After installation, just type

> soffice

At the command prompt, and get started with ur powerpoint files and presentations...

Have fun !!
