So people are often intrigued by my “power point slides.” I explain, patiently, that my slides are Keynote. (Repeat: legitimate Free Software objection; repeat: criticism accepted).
The latest version of Keynote breaks my slide show. (E.g., the deck that produced my TED talk now won’t work). That means I won’t be upgrading (or using the upgrade I already paid for). But given the slow but certain death of orphaned software, it also means it’s time to look elsewhere.
(You can see a full list of everything broken in the latest version here.)
I’ve been experimenting with Prezi, and so we’ll see if that’s an alternative. But I wonder whether there are any serious Free Software developers keen to do a rev of either Open or Libre Office’s slide app? I don’t have the cycles for an extensive commitment to this. But I’d be really keen to participate in a project to think about key improvements to make either really competitive.
