    I have to do a presentation for work. It's going to be presented using a work computer running Windows XP. I don't know if it has the latest version of Office.

    I have Keynote '08 and Office for Mac '04. I also have Office XP for Windows. What would be the safest and easiest way to put this together? I've never really used Keynote, but I'm somewhat familiar with Numbers and Pages.

    Oh, and this isn't really like something I can get fired from, if it totally bombs. It's for a leadership class thing we're doing on our own time, but we're presenting to some pretty important people.

    I also don't think I can ask them what version they have. I have a feeling I'd get "Windows version 2009" for my answer.

    If you aren't too worried about using keynotes 3D transitions and are just using fade in and stuff, I'd say Keynote '08. I've actually had some font issues from PowerPoint Mac to PowerPoint Windows, but if I export Keynote to ppt, it seems to work just fine.
