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.

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.
