Re: Keynote

Yeah, Keynote is nice, schweet in fact, but I'll wait for 2.0 (or probably 2.1, I can't stand buggy software.) Version 1 has a lot of limitations, like (trying to remember; haven't used it in a while,) 1 QT movie/effect per slide, and a host of small niggles with PPT compatibility. Also, it feels a bit incomplete. Many of the features are rather rudimentary, like the chart feature et al. Sorry I can't give a more verbose report, but I don't have it installed right now. (I have MS Office, which got a macro virus within a week of installing it, so I just deleted the normal Word template, and everything seems back to normal. I wish I could disable macros entirely, and not just on a per document basis.) (I also HATE slideshow presentations. I think from a pedagogical standpoint, they are crap, and only muck up any attempts to convey information.)
