I would appreciate if that datatracker simply rejected PPTX on upload.
It is several mangnitudes more efficient to have the uploaded simply
select a different option on save rather than to bother dozens of
consumers with having to spend hours and/or $$ to obtain a computing
environment that is capable of visualizing PPTX.
I agree in principle, but I have just converted a .pptx presentation (with some
animations that will be lost) into PDF.
The PPTX was 250K, the PDF is 2MB. 8 times as much. I know that bandwidth is
cheap and all, but I really don't like the inefficiency.
