That certainly depends on the presentation. Sometimes, without visual
references, a presentation can be confusing or boring. However, some
people use PowerPoint TOO much. Reading the slide contents is a big
mistake - your audience can read what's on the slide - what they want
from the speaker is NOT what's printed on the slides.

The quality of the presentation is in the presenter. Just as with any
tool, you should use the right one to get the job done. If you can
present your topic without using PowerPoint, then you should ask
yourself whether or not it's a good idea to include it - what's the
benefit. If your presentation would suffer without visual cues, then
certainly use it.

Also consider your audience. If you're doing a presentation in front of
1st graders, better include some bells & whistles to keep their
attention, right? So PowerPoint works well for that. But the same
presentation in front of adults would most likely not need those same
bells & whistles - or at least not so many of them - and perhaps
you wouldn't need PowerPoint at all.

Seems like audiences these days expect to see slides when attending a
lecture or business meeting, etc. But, again, don't use PowerPoint
because you can - but because you should. When you should use it - it's
certainly important. When you shouldn't - well, you get the idea. I
guess PowerPoint's importance is in the mind of the presenter....
