My group is in the process of setting up a slideshow template, and
unfortunately for practical reasons need to save it as a PowerPoint

My question is twofold:

(1) What are some of your experiences in opening and using PowerPoint
templates in LibreOffice? I prefer saving in the template in a format that I
can reasonably expect good support for in LibreOffice.

(2) We prefer a format that is as future proof as possible (in terms of
consistent look and format using it between different software, Micro$oft or
otherwise). With that in mind, which of the following would be a better
choice? Microsoft PowerPoint 97/Xp/2000/2003 Template (*.pot), Microsoft
PowerPoint 2007/2010 XML Template (*.potx), or Office Open XML Presentation
Template (*.potm; *.potx)?

Our work environment consists mainly of computers running Micro$oft
PowerPoint 2010, a couple with PowerPoint 2007, and only one with
LibreOffice 3.5. (Unfortunately switching all to LibreOffice is not
practical for numerous reasons that I wish weren't true, but beyond the
scope of this email.)

Thank you in advance for your time.
