MagicPoint is an X11 based presentation program whose presentation file format is a plain text format similar to HTML.
We've recently done a series of presentations (the UnixTutorials) using MagicPoint.
- Plain text file format can be created in any editor
- Can shell out and run any commands, and display output (text or graphics) as part of slide
- Good HTML output (thumbnails)
- Not WYSIWYG - really bad for a presentation program
- Graphic placement ability appalling
- Can't do tables
MagicPoint is not a drop in replacement for Microsoft's !PowerPoint?. If you'd like one, try out OpenOffice Impress.
