Do Away with PowerPoint with S5 on Linux

“Public speaking and giving presentations are stressful enough
for most folks — why add to that with complex software and
worries about platform compatibility? If you know a bit about HTML
and how to work a browser, S5 is a standards-based slide show
system that can take the hassle out of creating presentations.

“The last few years I’ve spent more time than I care to think
about creating slides using Impress and other presentation
software. While Impress has its proponents and it’s a great
replacement for people who’ve gotten used to using Microsoft’s
PowerPoint, I don’t like using it much at all. It’s clunky, heavy,
and really sort of intrusive. I’m glad it exists for folks who want
a PowerPoint alternative, but I’ve wanted something much
simpler.”
