Out of the applications I mentioned the only one I have done any real
work on was KPresenter. It could certainly be more... (better?) ...
but it was sufficient for my needs. It lacks animation and is probably
every bit the PowerPoint clone that OpenOffice is. I stay away from
OpenOffice as much as possible because it is such a resource pig.

Slideshow seems like an impressive application to me from looking at the
web site http://www.alobbs.com/slideshow. It has an option to create
"ASCII Slides", so I don't know if that means it can read from a text
file or not. I might try it out just to see, but I am trying to cut
back on what I am installing these days. The ports system almost makes
it *too* easy to install things and I've gone a little crazy with it
