I've only done a few very short "slide shows" and found powerdot was  
just the right thing, esp. given the ability to have it generate  
several slides from one "page" such that each slide had different  
highlighting and the explanatory text at the bottom could change.  
Just my buck fitty. Maybe beamer could do that, but I found the  
learning curve way too steep. Somehow the way I thought about my  
presentation and the way powerdot was written just "fit". Your  
mileage will be different.
