    Hi,

    Basically I am fed up with powerpoint, I think its a horrible application, dont have the money or any other use for a MAC right now although I can forsee buying one as my next laptop.

    My question is

    Is there a keynote or similar application that I can use on my pc/windows vista instead of horrible powerpoint???

    Any help greatly appreciated!

    No as far as Keynote is concerned, but you could try the PDF output for presentations, or OpenOffice has a powerpoint like tool.

    Not sure beyond that. Sorry.

    Keynote is one of the jewels of Apple's software lineup for OS X. There is nothing on Windows that can touch it.

    Like the OP and many others, I got quickly fed up with Powerpoint. It really isn't that polished of a product.

    You have clearly never seen a Keynote presentation. If you had, then you would know that Keynote makes PowerPoint look like the scribblings of a child.

    Then buy a Mac and run OS X. I don't care how good Keynote does/doesn't look, that's not the issue. It won't work on Windows. Both Keynote and Powerpoint are perfectly capable programs for serving their purpose, which is presentation software.

    Keynote is ages ahead of Powerpoint and puts it to shame. I can do so much easier a presentation on Keynote than on Powerpoint and it's endless maze of menus.
