LaTex presentations!? Neat.

Thanks for reminding me of Sliderocket. I'll have a look. Last time I looked they had no offline option and had frozen new subscriptions while they focused on development.

Sliderocket only provides an off-line presenter that syncs with the online account. There is no way to edit presentations off-line.

The ability to edit presentations offline is essential when you are travelling or, as often happens, you have no Internet access for some other reason.

As it turns out SlideRocket is no longer operating free accounts as a result of the merger with ClearSlide. The site remains for old subscribers but the free version ended at the end of 2014.

I posted in another thread about these two- they are great.

really it's the old 80/20 rule again:
- about 80% of M$O is available in those alternatives,
but the other 20% can only be found in the real M$O

it's those little things that cause the most anguish.
& it'll be one of them, that you wish to use.


that's the reason that the Office division, is more profitable than the Windows division.
& part of the reason that that their latest system can be given away, for Free.
and Advertising, of course.

Windows 10 is not being given away for free. It is a free upgrade if you have a valid license for Windows 7 or 8. Many users of Windows 10 have purchased it with a new PC or as a retail copy. As time goes on that proportion will rise from 10-15% to nearer to 100%
