    Hi,

    I have a powerpoint presentation but it was made on a PC - is there a possibility to watch it on a mac on OS X or are they incompattible?
    Thanks for answers,

    Phil

    If you have office v. X, OpenOffice and/or Keynote, you can open the PC powerpoint presentation.

    get a trial version

    versiontracker.com has a 30 day trial of Office V.x its a large download, but it will do what you need. Its at the bottom of the first page.

    And even if you had OfficeX the full edition (which I have) you might have problems if the person who put together the presentation used some animation techniques that are available on the PC version and not the Mac version.

    This is very frustrating for me a work - and has caused some issues in the past.
