metapost & powerpoint comparison

    There has been some lengthy discussion on pros and cons of Word and
    Latex on the web. But for drawing figure there are also two set of
    packages metapost and powerpoint(visio). I don't see much discuss on
    the advantages and disadvantages of them.

    Although I'm a fan of latex and metapost. I'm urged to switch from
    metapost to powerpoint for drawing pictures (mainly for acadamic
    papers) by somebody.

    Their claim is that pictures in acadamic papers are mainly spontaneous
    and ppt is fast and good for those picture (because it is WYSIWYG),
    while metapost is particularly good for pictures that can be
    programmed. So for acadamic paper, it is better to use power point to
    draw pictures.

    I don't know much about powerpoint. Could somebody have good experience
    on both metapost and ppt give some comments on which tool is good what
    applications? If I want to convince others switch from ppt to metapost,
    what major advantages of metapost should I say against ppt?

    Thanks,
    Peng
