If you want it to look exactly like the Powerpoint version, then you
could take a series of screenshots on windows (unless there is a way to
export a powerpoint presentation as a series of images), and then use
gthumb, or any other image viewer with a slideshow mode.

Of course you wouldn't be able to edit them (other than change the
order) after that.
