Why convert to m$? Assuming the presentation content is not too
dynamic, pdf is easier to  deliver (by fullscreen presentation mode).
Trying to convert to m$ is high risk: formatting details will be lost
during the conversion and is also dependent upon the m$ software
version. Another way to produce pdf presentations is via the LaTeX
Beamer class.

I agree on the MS conversion uncertainty. But saving to PDF doesn't make any
sense. Unless you are doing a presentation that is so static that in fact
you didn't need Impress in the first place (you could do it in Writer),
converting to PDF is killing the presentation!

There is ONE advantage of exporting to PDF over using ODP or exporting to
PPT(X): PDF is the only file format that LibreOffice manages to embed fonts
into. And that could be important for a designer's presentation ;)
