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
slightly off-white.

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.
