I have used advi, which is yet another latex package combined with a
program (advi) to run the presentation. It's far from user friendly, but
has some really cool features like supporting (by default--not quite so
cool) eps figures with transparent backgrounds. It just turns white
transparent, so if you really want white, you have to make it ever so
I'm not sure I'd recommend advi (I've only used it once--the only time I
did a presentation since I got my laptop), but if you think of latex as
being user friendly (I do), advi might be the program for you.
