Alternatives to Powerpoint - My Favorite

OpenSource.com just sent me a mailing this morning entitled: 3 open source alternatives to PowerPoint.  I immediately thought to myself "Ok, LibreOffice, CalligraOffice ... I wonder what the 3rd is?".  I was really surprised it was MY personal favorite: Reveal.js.  I've been using that since Perltricks.com had an article on it.  I've seen several presentations done using it at YAPCs and Ohio Linuxfest (coming up soon, btw). 

Despite the headline, OpenSource.com goes beyond 3 alternatives and also discusses using your console for slide shows with Vimdeck.  Very interesting!

The article didn't explain how to use (my favorite) Reveal.js though so if you're curious, check out the Perltricks link above.  I think you'll be glad you did.
