I guess I can add to this being a fairly new Mac user. I was always intimidated by Powerpoint, and really almost never used it.

Keynote however, made me want to learn it and I have created a few presentations. It helps to get some books that will put you through an exercise to create stuff, this way you learn in a methodical way. I have iWork 08 from the Apple Training Series. by Richard Harrington and RHED Pixel. It comes with a CD and all kinds of exercises for Pages, Keynote and Numbers. I got the same series for iLife 08.

Having said the above, I don't use this for work, so I can use whatever I want. If you need this for work and you are required to prepare complex presentations, then you might not want to spend the time learning it.
