"This article describes the features of the free software MagicPoint. It is one among the very few free presentation software for X-Window. The presentation is described by a simple but powerful language."

"Presentation software became popular a few years ago and have now been integrated into the office sotfware packages by default. Before that, in order to make a presentation using a free system, the old method of the retroprojection with the slides (using latex Slitex ) was used."
