Any decent PowerPoint templates out there? (I know it's an oxymoron...)

So I've got to do a PowerPoint presentation (yuck) and the vast majority of PP templates our there seem to be pretty bad. Does anyone have any recommendations?

I've used these for Keynote before and am looking for anything similar for PowerPoint:

[www.keynotepro.com]

Clean simple lines, nice color palettes, hard edges, somewhat minimalist...

Any help appreciated...

Since you like Keynote, can't you make the presentation in Keynote? I think the files are compatible with PPT. Or if you have to use PPT, can't you take a template from Keynote and use it in PPT?

The Keynote files do export to PowerPoint but a lot seems to get lost in the translation and you wind spending a lot of time monkeying around with them in PowerPoint to get what you want.

I suspect I will wind up doing exactly what you suggested...take one of the nice Keynote templates from keynotepro.com and exporting it without any content then building in PPT. I was just hoping someone out there might be selling decent PPT templates. Alas...that just may not be the case.

The last time I had to do a presentations for a Windows user, I was severely limited (to Times and Ariel) by the fact that the Mac version of PowerPoint wouldn't embed files for Windows use. Has that changed, and if so, at what version?
