    what i use, is open office by apache. it has everything that office has, except for something like outlook. it can be downloaded at www.openoffice.org.

    If you have a google account https://drive.google.com/ supports ~most~ of the power point stuff. Imported items may not be 100% (at least when I still dealt with much power point, its been a few years since I've had to move things back & forth much) if whomever created it got extra fancy.

    open office is nice as well, but if you just want to look at something real quick the google stuff is convenient.

    I'd second Dan's suggestion. Guess it would work great for doing slide shows for before and after, either restorations or drawing to final product. How are you planning to use it?

    I use libreoffice, which is an offshoot of Open Office. (There was a time when there was some fuss with the license of Open Office, So libre-office forked off from the project. )

    If you just want to LOOK at ppt files, then Microsoft Power Point viewer is free.
    There's usually more than one way to do it...
