Major gaps of Open Office Impress versus Microsoft Power Point: what do you think?

Filed under
OOo

Yesterday Sergio, a user of OpenOffice Impress, sent to the OpenOffice.org discussion list his list of the “Major Gaps of OpenOffice Impress 3.3 vs. Microsoft Office PowerPoint”.

Sergio compiled the list because, as much as he likes OpenOffice, “after struggling for over 1 year, sadly he had to stop using Open Office Impress and go back to Microsoft Power Point”.

Personally, I have experienced and can confirm most of what Sergio lists as “File Processing issues”. I haven’t encountered the other problems, but that may be because I use Impress very little these days, and I only need it for very simple slideshows. I don’t even know yet, for lack of personal experience, if and how the current LibreOffice version of Impress would be different. However, I am very curious to know if such differences exists.

    OnePlus introduced its own version of Android for its One smartphone earlier this month in response to its standoff with Cyanogen, and now the company has revealed that it will unveil its own ROM which can be installed on third-party Android devices on February 12. Correction: OnePlus tells us that, in fact, it won’t launch the ROM on the 12th. This is a tease-of-a-tease, and instead we can expect to see “more information about the ROM” not an actual download for third-party Android devices.
