I came across this interesting blog post by Andrew Dlugan that’s actually an open letter to the PowerPoint programming (development) team. It talks about making some changes to the program, and I do agree with several of them. About those I don’t agree with, those are mainly wishes to curtail how the program operates by providing users with less options for transitions, words, and color. That’s like debating the intelligence of users, and putting a road block to creativity.

I like the requests that pertain to including Nancy Duarte‘s book with every copy of PowerPoint. But asking everyone to pay for visuals and give Microsoft a cut — well, that’s a no-no. Lots of PowerPoint users are students, teachers, and churches that cannot afford to pay for every graphic that they use on a slide.

Andrew’s opinions form a great starting point — and the comments on the page prove that!
