What is KeyJnote?

KeyJnote is a stylish presentation tool by Martin Fiedler with cool eye-candy slide effects and some really useful features. Unfortunatly viewing these presentations is not as easy as creating them: KeyJnote only provides a command line interface for tuning its features.

What is BOSS Presentation Tool

For those, who prefer the graphical way, BOSS Presentation Tool is the right tool. It provides an easy-to-use frontend to KeyJnote. All important command line switches are exposed through the GUI.

BOSS Presentation includes a feature to convert ppt,odp,pps document format to pdf.So using BOSS Presentation Tool a pdf,ppt,pps,odp or a directory containing one or more images can be displayed as slideshows.
