I'm happy for the final deliverable to be PDF, but we should also 
provide the source powerpoint (or open office version). As far as I'm 
aware, you can't edit PDF slideshows with Open Office, or other free 
tools, and that is important for maintaining the powerpoint, and to 
allow people to cut and paste into their own presentations.
