All I can say is that there are times when people where I work
care *very* much about internal presentations (e.g., training,
presenting business case for mgt approval, keeping loosely-
coordinated groups in synch, training some new suit to what
a department does, etc. ad infinitum...)
Those are all just as much a part of "real business" IMHO as
retail sales or consulting.

The way I understood the message of
that's *exactly* the point (and sense). What if someone is
using a box that doesn't run anything from Redmond? Are they
not doing "real business" and therefore disqualified from
viewing/participating? The idea of a platform-agnostic
presentation capability (especially if it supports real-time
interactivity) makes tremendous sense to me, for all kinds of
reasons. And I think RT has proven that it can be done.
In the extreme case, send the entire presentation AND /View
on a single diskette/email. They'll easily fit!
This sentence contradicts itself -- no actually it doesn't.
