Downloaded and installed OOO3.1 on a CentOS 5.4 i386 I had here. After some 
initial foul ups on my part (had OOO2 already installed, and had to first 
uninstall the older one and then do a forced manual rpm-install of OOO3.1), 
this is what I've found.

I got a pptx-file from my boss with pictures and formatting and whatnot. It 
opened fine in CentOS. Some formatting was plain lost, but the pictures were 
all there, as far as I can tell. Some graphics, like arrows and such did not 
get through and looked like something from the 80s block graphics era.

Some text got printed over other parts of the text, however I've a inkling 
this might be due to the screen size maybe?

I also opened the same pptx with OOO3.1 on my WinXP-machine, and got a blank 
white screen, in slide show-mode.

So basically, CentOS+OOO3.1 vs WinXP+OOO3.1 scores 1 to 0. Good work CentOS 
and OOO teams!
