Keynote needs a lot of work but it is already so far ahead of ppt it's
not funny. I get ppt slides from Windows machines daily, and none of
them work correctly, and trying to actually view them with the ppt
client is a joke.
Windows and MS Office are the antithesis of interoperability.
As for the original topic, I work with many co-authors as well and one
author controls the actual document format and the others contribute,
so whoever is the lead decides what text formatting program to use. I
would love to see 16-bit in LaTeX even if it was only Mac-specific.
XeTeX is the most promising choice. It certainly can't handle
production typesetting, and I doubt Johnathon wants to focus on this
aspect, so some manner of taking the XeTeX technology and bringing into
the main line would be required.
