"One of my biggest concerns when I adopted the Linux OS over
Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT) Windows was Linux's ability to supply me
with a robust presentation program. I did lots of lecturing and
instructional seminars. Those activities required a product that
closely mimicked Microsoft PowerPoint quality. The resulting file
also had to be compatible with PowerPoint.
"My first foray into a replacement for the Microsoft Office
suite of which PowerPoint is an industry staple was the close
look-alike bundle from OpenOffice.org. Its presentation module,
called "Impress," did a great job of doing exactly that --
"Impress let me work much the same as if I were still using
PowerPoint. It botched some of the display elements when viewed in
PowerPoint, however. But if I avoided the really fancy stuff in my
slide designs, I got few complaints from colleagues who imported
the Impress presentations in Windows."
