The free OpenOffice.org suite can import/export PowerPoint, as it can all other
MS Office formats.  I just viewed this particular file with no problems.

There is also a free PowerPoint Viewer from Microsoft.com.

This slide show is important for D in that it offers a more balanced perspective
on the performance issue than what I've seen here at DM.

True. D is designed to be a language that potentially can be much better optimized than the equivalent C code. Already, D does better on the dhrystone benchmark than C because of this. But the current compiler has only scratched the surface of the possible performance improvements. The first goal is to get the right semantics, and then implement a correct compiler.
