Its very noticable that although Google Docs offers a word processor and a spreadsheet function, it's missing the presentations feature – ie Powerpoint from Office.

However Google already offer a slideshow feature within Picasa Web Albums, so I've done a bit of experimenting as to how that might be used to show Powerpoint files.

Yes, it requires offline conversion of the presentaion to jpeg, and the "collaborative updating" from the other Google Docs offerings is missing, but it does go part of the way to proving the necessary feature.

I prefer the new service:

Although it's not editing of powerpoint files, it gives a very convenient way to share those presentations...
