 Grumpy Editor's guide to presentation programs

"Grumpy Editor series. A sad, but common experience in the 1990's was to see presentations at Linux conferences which were clearly done with PowerPoint. When Linux advocates need to use a 100% proprietary system to communicate with their audience, something is clearly wrong. Fortunately, those days are behind us, and PowerPoint only makes appearances in irrelevant corners at Linux events - LinuxWorld keynotes, for example. Your editor has given a fair number of talks this year in a number of exotic locales, and that trend looks set to continue. So presentation software is an area of interest; it is time to look at the current state of the art. Your editor has found that, while the situation is better than it has ever been, there is still room for improvement."
