    so i was working using Key Note at a friend's house for a group project
    and i saved it onto my usb
    but my dad took my macbook on a business trip with him so now i'm mac-less.
    i really need to work on the Key Note but i cant open it.
    is there a way to open Key Note files and work on them on a PC?
    HELP!

    I'm thinking you are SOL

    Hopefully somebody else is more optimistic :(

    No, but from within Keynote they can be exported as a powerpoint file.

    This of course requires you to have access to a mac. Hopefully you can find one to use temporarily (at the school library, perhaps), or maybe you have a friend with a mac?

    ... or email it over and I can convert it to PPT for you -- unless it has some super secret stuff! bob.zune at gmail com

    If you don't have PowerPoint, you can download OpenOffice.Org (or NeoOffice) for free and it should handle PPT files.

    In Keynote, under the "File" menu, "Export."

    I think you can also export as a quicktime movie...from my understanding it is still interactive, and looks basically the same, as long as the computer you are showing the presentation on has a recent version of quicktime.
