Powerpoint's finest hour?

One of the most common pieces of business software, it's everywhere you go, and badly done, it can be intensely annoying (or mind-numbingly tedious) - and it was Colin Powell's main tool at the UN.

Check out this Guardian piece for a concise history of Powerpoint (without the slides, bullet points and pointless transitions). I have to admit to being surprised to find out that Whitfield Diffie was one of the original authors.
