    Because you don't have PowerPoint installed? Just like if you were running Windows without PowerPoint installed (it's not built into Windows either you know).

    You can get viewers for pps files for the Mac. Search on google for 'powerpoint pps mac'. The viewers don't provide for re-writing the file though.
