I couldn't agree more and it's not just Powerpoint which I've used since version 3 and of which 4.3 Pro was the pinnacle IMHO. All the MS Office tools have been getting worse for a few years now, Word turned after about 2003. I still hold onto and use some of the ancient versions but compatability issues make that more and more of a problem.
I always assumed they were removing options and messing up the UI because US users prefered it that way but I think in the end its just because they have had no serious competition for so long. What else are the Office development team going to do but fiddle with what isn't broken and hand code interop assemblies ( Will drive anyone mad who has not already had the treatment )
