Where can I download a copy of PowerPoint?

You can't. Not legally. Not a full copy, anyway.

Powerpoint is a commercial software package that you can buy from virtually any software vendor.

If you're a teacher, student, web developer or startup company, you may qualify for the Spark program.
You can read about the Spark programs here.

If you only need to view or print a PowerPoint presentation, there are free PowerPoint Viewers available for download for PC and Mac.

Or you can get a time-limited (60 day) trial version of Office 2003, including PowerPoint here You can order a CD or download it. The CD is free, other than a $5 shipping charge and takes 3 to 5 weeks to deliver.

Powerpoint versions 97 through 2003 share the same basic file format, so you can usually open files from any current version of PowerPoint in PowerPoint 97. Online auctions like eBay frequently have older versions of software at pretty good prices. We don't recommend that you get anything older than PowerPoint 97.

If you got a copy of Office 2007 with a new computer but didn't get CDs with it, try this Microsoft site

His first name's Peter or Paul or something like that. We don't have his email address (understandably, he keeps a low profile) but most Microsoft email adresses are FirstInitial +

You could try emailing him ...
