Welllll, I have a big speech tomorrow, and we need to have a powerpoint wiht it. I don't have the powerpoint program on my computer and I kinda need it to make my powerpoint presentation. The problem is that I don't know how or where I can get it or download it. Anyone? I really need help.

I also need to know how to get my presentation from my house, to school.

You can
1. Buy it
2. Dowload it on a P2P program but you stand a great chance of getting a virus if you download the Windows version
2. Download Open Office for free (http://www.openoffice.org/)and use the PowerPoint clone which works great

Quick solution...run to your local library and rent out a Powerpoint book with a disc...you may be able to burn a copy onto your hard drive or onto another disc. Hope that works.

Everyone else has powerpoints made in powerpoint though. Will that be compatible with the mac that we will be using to show them on?

So I can download that and make my powerpoint, just as I could with Powerpoint, and then present it on a mac at school, without any differences?

How do I actually get it from my comp to the mac at school then?

Yes, the file is portable and usable on Open Office and PowerPoint. To transport the file, I would suggest emailing it to a web-based email account so you can just download it to the target computer at your school

So make the powerpoint, then email it to myself on yahoo.com? Can you email stuff to yourself?
