What do you dislike?
i think that with every new version they keep geting better, i really like powerpoint and theres nothing that i dislike, maybe when you are dealing with large video files, it is really slow for saving the file, and also when you are working on a large presentation, like 4gb or more, it would take aditional space on your hard drive while you are working, and this is incovenient if you are using a new laptop with ssd, because the size of this drives is really small, unless you got the money for a bigger ssd.
also i dont think that powerpoint takes advantage of the ssd speeds, because it is slow when you are trying to save your file every 5 minutes or so.
