I recently struggled with the problem of generating plots from R on Unix that
could be used in PowerPoint on Windows.  I learned that "png" format works
reasonably well, but the default resolution from png() was inadequate.  I ended
up using:

  bitmap("myfile.png", type="png16m", height=8.5, width=11, res=300)

and you might try even higher resolutions (res=600).
