Windows recommends PowerPoint Viewer 2007 though there is a 2010 version

While working on my Windows 8 test client, I downloaded a PowerPoint file and because I don’t have Office installed Windows prompts me how I would like to open this file. Knowing that it will point me to the PowerPoint Viewer I choose to look for an app on the web.

But surprisingly the Windows File Association information site recommendation lists Microsoft Power Point 2007 and PowerPoint Viewer 2007.

So I start to wonder whether there might be a 2010 version as well and indeed there is one it’s just not called PowerPoint Viewer 2010 but just PowerPoint Viewer.
