My country Win 7 x64 doesnt have Powerpoint. Even though I have alternatives like OpenOffice I think Powerpoint is a class of its own. Is there a way I can download powerpoint... even if its old or something?

PowerPoint is a Microsoft Office product.  It can be purchased as a standalone product, though it does carry a fairly hefty price tag.  You can find it here: http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msusa/en_US/pdp/productID.323024800


A free alternative is something called Kingsoft Presentation Free which you can find here: http://www.ksosoft.com/product/presentation-free.html

What country are you in? You can always buy a copy second hand on ebay. If you really need one, there are plenty of genuine Microsoft copies going around from 2010 and 2013 that are pretty reasonable.

For myself, I prefer MS-Office that is Office 2013 or earlier simply for the reason that the entire suite is composed of programs resident on your computer and that you have a permanent lease on (no one owns Office besides Microsoft, technically - you're granted a license to use it).


Unless there's some element of Office 365 or Office 2016 that you simply must have I'd look for a reasonably priced copy of Office 2010 or Office 2013.  That being said, be certain that the edition you're looking at contains PowerPoint.  There are so may editions of Office that my head boggles at the combinations of programs in the Office family that get bundled together under different editions.
