Review: This Microsoft Office presenting software program offers the ultimate in compatibility. It is considered the gold standard in the world of presentation software, and one of the primary benefits of its status is intimate familiarity. It’s easy to learn to use, and offers a staggering range of features that support limitless creativity.
The one down side of PowerPoint is that Microsoft does not offer it for individual sale. To use it, you are forced to purchase the entire Microsoft Office suite, which includes other popular programs like Word and Excel…which you may already have or not need.
