Internet Explorer desperate to OLE
Many years ago, OLE (Object Linking and Embedding) was the new thing. It is a very good paradigm and is still used in many places today. However, it should NOT be used by MS Internet Explorer for opening Powerpoint presentations (or Excel docs) in a pale, useless version of Powerpoint/Excel. Why can't it just open Powerpoint if I want it too!?
