Re: Anything similar to Powerpoint?
My personal preference is to use HTML presentation on
a browser. Totally platform independent.
Opera 5 supports full screen (F11 toggle), and it is
*actually* the "full" screen with no browser borders,
(unlike IE which still has the browser frame around).
This is true for both the Linux and Win-9x versions.
All you need is a .gif "next" and "previous" link on
each individual html "slide".
The only problem that I face, is that, I need to
carry my Opera-5 CD to all venues, and uninstall it
on completion of the presentation. Opera-5 is not
that common and is not available on most systems.
