 What does flying/swimming cars have to do with improving the existing
 PPT import and export filter ?

It's the economy! Only dreams are free. Of course everybody wants the magic soft to open each and every proprietary file format of computing history.

Again, a user reports a problem with the PPT import/export filter, and instead of constructive feedback on how to improve the situation we get:

 - Microsoft trashing (or rather, m$ tra$shing)
 - Lectures on ODF
 - Blaming the workflow or the user not choosing either MS Office or LibreOffice

I object to all that because it's not unreasonable to improve the situation and the user can contribute to improving the filters by reporting simple examples showing the issue.

And then you start about flying and swiming cars, dreams, magic and whatnot.

 I don't know what you are afraid of, but fear is the path to the dark
 side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate...

All I wish is a little more self confidence regarding the ODF standard. We don't need a third decade where virtually everybody is occupied with MS interfaces, MS documents, MS browsers, MS APIs, MS protocols and extensions of all kinds.

Well, you are preaching to the wrong choir, and that's not helpful.
