Excellent package. But be careful if you use the -clock- package (very
nice, it puts a live clock on your slides to time your presentation; excellent
for windbags) it seems to have the propensity to freeze the presentation
about fifteen minutes into it, Very embarrassing. Also you cannot go
directly to pdf, you have to take some circuitous routes. But hey, it's free. One day it will catch up to PowerPoint.

People interested in this issue may be interested
in the following detail. During the recent Boston
users' meeting I kept a rough tally of how presentations
had been produced. A clear majority had used some kind
of LaTeX package and were showing it using Adobe Acrobat.

It was a package called -beamer-, for the record. Downloadable from
CTAN, and then you know what to do -- RTFM :)). I think there were
about five contributed talks where it was used.
