Being a fan of OpenSource software I really like OpenOffice (OO). I do have to admit that thus far MS PowerPoint has had the upper hand on OO Impress. One of the reasons was that OO didn't have templates that are available in PowerPoint. We'll that has changed. I stumbled upon the OO extensions website: extensions.services.openoffice.org today and found the Professional Template Pack by Sun Microsystems, Inc. It is available in several different languages. It is a must have if you are not into creating your own templates and want something that looks different than the two that come with OO. This is one step closer to Impress being a solid alternative to PowerPoint.
Thanks to Sun.
