    Yes, they are.
    I've been presenting with Impress either at student level (OOo) or at professional level (LO) as late as a couple of months ago on Ubuntu. I didn't have any slide transitions or other issue at all. It usually works very smoothly. And my slide are slick, with some effects, delays and stuff you need to call for a slight dramatic effect.
    Actually, when I'm allowed to by company policies, I use Impress over PowerPoint (which I've also used in both context) any day. Much more intuitive.

      True, but a bit more consistency wouldn't hurt here.

      Of course it is up to the projects themselves to decide which compiler they want to support as the profits from compiler diversity come at a cost. But if they want to spread the usage of some of their core components elsewhere it would be handy if they did support both GCC and Clang. On the other hand one could argue that it is up to the projects which want to incorporate these pieces to do their due diligance and deal with the fallout and there is also some merit to this thinking.

        I tried to use Impress presentation a few years ago and it was incredibly slow. Since then, I export my slides to PDF and present them as PDF.

        Don't know what is the status of Impress today, but I'm pleased enough with PDF.

          any chance you could post a video of that?
