Can I open powerpoint files with Appleworks

I am a switcher and have just got my new 14" iBook G4 today. I have to admit that I absolutely LOVE IT! It set up my wireless ADSL connection in a matter of seconds (unlike the 4 hrs it took with XP!).

Anyway, that aside I have a little problem. I can't afford Powerpoint but I need to open .ppt files (preferably to edit). Can this be done with Appleworks (that shipped with my iBook)? I can't figure it out. If not, how else can I open it without shelling out lots of cash?

I just switched and have lots of MS office files to work with. I tried openOffice and Appleworks and they are just not compatable enough.

I got Office v.X for Students/Teachers for $149. You get word, excel, powerpoint, and Entourage (aka outlook) and it works great. I absolutely recommend getting this package.


OS X: grep -v ^$ logfile.txt | enscript -2rG
DOS: Huh?
QUOTE Thanks
