Open office will not display video files linked in power point presentations. It's a fact.

...as if that's a deal breaker..... Couldn't you link to the video from within impress? Otherwise perhaps there's a power point viewer out there for ya....

I like OOo and use it often. I do _really_ dislike the way the charting works in comparison to excel. If they made the charting a little more intuitive to format and added a couple features, I would probably never use M$ Office again.

Some complaints:
Can't get gridlines to show up in log graphs
PITA to format the axes by clicking on the graph
Many other idiosyncrasies that I don't immediately recall that are a chore to work around
 
This happened to one of my colleague in a tight scheduled international conference.
This pc with open office was used for such a conference and in the middle of a presentation the video files wouldn't show up. He noticed the use of open office and had to run around for another pc

This is quite annoying when hundreds of participants are sitting in the hall.

Everything in this world is not perfect, that's also a fact.

ProFit is a very nice software for diagrams.
