Its an interesting question: how many people who just wish to peruse
the files will feel compelled to google and download new apps just to
be able to read them?
Given that I don't run the Microsoft virus, Windows, on anything, have
OpenOffice.org on all our Linux and OS X systems, and that OpenOffice.org
software is freely available, I don't see that it's a problem.
We don't all run presentation software, either. If you just
want to review a presentation rather than create/edit it, a format
like PDF can be a better choice, and that applies regardless of how
you feel about Microsoft.
Effectively, what you are saying to many people is 'rather
than use a viewer app you already have, to view this you will need to
download a multi-megabyte office suit just to look at it'. If you
don't see that as a problem, well, its still a problem.
