does it have powerpoint or version like it on there? Cheers
i think there presentation tool is called draw? but yeah they have one and its perfectly useable. you won't be able to open the office07 document types in it though (for example .docx, although you can open .doc files fine. you also get a choice of file formats to save it in)

The presentation tool from OpenOffice is called Impress and is very similar to MSO-PowerPoint (the other can be a bit too different in parts)

open office has a powerpoint equivalent its very good

just make sure when you save it, save it as a powerpoint file, the standard file type that it saves as cannot be opened by powerpoint but only by open office.

newer MSO can open OOo files (the latest can even save as OOo files) and for older MSO you can get an importer.

I only point this out because while it is advisable to save in the doc/ppt format over the odf equiv you can lose some of your formatting
