Wow, the design looks much worse than I would have expected from LinkedIn.

Looks perfectly minimalist to me. You don't want a flashy design to distract from important content.

Disagree with this.

In today's world (particularly in consumer Internet), investors often judge the "quality" of a team based on the aesthetics of the pitch-deck -- and website. All things being equal, the deck with the better design sense wins.

In the present context, I think you make a good point.

But it's worth noting this deck is from 2004, and thus should be judged in the context of contemporary designs.

Not that I like the design either, but a successful guy has taken a non-trivial amount of time to share his experience/wisdom, so the only think I can say is "thank you".
