Well, reading Guido's post, I tried to open one of his powerpoint slides
with kpresenter (of the KOffice suite). It was a nice way to test the
Linux OOM (out of memory) killer. At 1500 MB process size, Linux killed
kpresenter and an unrelated daemon :-) But then, I wasn't that surprised
- KOffice never was stable for me.
OpenOffice worked just great, though. It can also save PowerPoint, which
few Open Source tools can.
