Hi :)
Prezi, htmlslidy, smil, html5 sound worth quickly looking up and maybe

Good to see some good suggestions buried away in there.  Delivery was
a bit off-putting but it's good to have someone fairly extreme
reminding us that life is worth enjoying rather than going that way
ourselves.  A little less tension and a little more humour and fun!

A full Dvd with other OpenSource projects is prolly more than really
needed on this occasion.  It's tricky to track all the latest versions
of everything.  If you want that sort of thing then look towards the
North American DVD Project or the German one and i suspect a few more
languages have their own versions.

Rhythmbox seems to be quite a popular music player but there are
plenty of options.  Vlc can do the job quite well even though it's not
it's main purpose.
Regards from
Tom :)

LO is not an m$ clone. Use the native file formats. Create odp format
presentations and provide LO installation files on the dvd. Similarly,
provide vlc, mplayer or similar software to play music files which
should be in oga format.

This slide show is for distribution to others via DVD, and I'm really
getting frustrated with it.  I'd hate to think that the hours I've spent
on it have been wasted and that I have to start over with another
application.  But I can't assume anything about the software anyone else
has, and just about everyone has the ability to view a .pps file
regardless of their OS (I can be pretty sure, but not 100% positive,
that everyone on my distribution list is using either Windows or Mac
machines).  Can anyone see anything I've overlooked?

Alternatives exists, such as htmlslidy and prezi. It the slide show is
seemingly of multimedia, could also use html5 and smil, delivering the
presentation via a web browser (depending on smil use, in which case a
smil player may be required as well).
