In order to be able to effectively design and shape the future of
LibreOffice modules, it is imperative that we define what these modules are
for. Knowing the purpose of each module will help us focus on doing one
thing well and avoid counterproductive feature creep.
Since, out of all the modules, Impress's purpose might be one of the
clearest, let's start with it.
My rough draft:
The purpose of Impress is "to make it simple and quick to craft a slide
show to perfectly complement a speech."
Please comment on this.
I'd like to have the purpose decided on by the next IRC chat.
For comparison, Apple's Keynote "makes it simple to create and deliver
beautiful presentations"  and Prezi "is a virtual whiteboard that
transforms presentations from monologues into conversations: enabling
people to see, understand, and remember ideas."
