Presentation sans Powerpoint?

Wed, Sep 25, 2002 with tags old

Today I figured out how to get LaTeX to generate PDFs that work for full screen display with nice big letters so I can easily make presentation slides. That first part took the use of FoilTeX which is a not-so-free package of LaTeX macros from IBM designed to make slides. I had the second epiphany when I downloaded and installed PPower4 which allows me to add in transitions and background colors to my LaTeX. So now I’m working on my presentation for Friday, and not a single bit of it will be generated with Microsoft stuff. And it will truly be cross platform. YAY.
