Linux substitute for Apple Keynote software program?
I am attempting to move from Mac OS X to a Linux circulation, maybe/probably Ubuntu. Among my favored applications for the Mac was Apple Keynote, that makes impressive related activity discussions.
Exists an equal remedy for Linux circulations that matches/comes near Keynote in regards to its gloss and also convenience of usage? I find out about OpenOffice.org Impress yet, no word play here planned, I am not really Impress-ed ...
Yes, there is OpenOffice.org Impress, LibreOffice Impress (which are virtually the very same point) and also there is KPresenter as a component of KOffice.org collection mostly for KDE although it operates in GNOME. I would certainly advise you making use of a online based discussion editor which I locate to be exceptionally very easy and also really comparable to Keynote. It is called SlideRocket, it is free and also calls for just a Google account.

Certain the user interface will certainly be a bit various, yet - as I recognize it - there is absolutely nothing you can do with Keynote that you can refrain with Impress.
If you agree to go outdoors your convenience area, LaTeX Beamer is actually the only point I have actually located that can match Keynote's result for Linux.
