and it did not run properly on the conference ...

Personally think that both powerpoint and impress fall short. Powerpoint has the terrible situation that different versions are not compatible. Ever tried mac powerpoints on pc's - it's a mess? Impress has to be accompanied by 'Portable Open Office' on your jump - for sure it's not installed on the computer in the conference room. Video support in both isn't great either and you'll always have to keep you fingers cross: will it run??? It would be great if we had a good fall back format. Flash would be a logical one. Impress does export to flash, but strangely enough, all video content is missing after the export. PDF is too static. Any idea's?
