 [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.
