I missed the initial post in this thread (or already replied to it and
deleted same).  Quoting context is helpful.

Another option is simply using HTML -- your presentation is portable
over a wide range of platforms, automajickally.

Galeon (http://galeon.sourceforge.net/) is a *very* nice, full-featured
browser that includes a kiosk mode, toggled by the <F11> function key,
which makes a slick presentation environment.  The one nice add would be
to have some way for automating the "next" page view without aiming for
a button.

Otherwise, yes, Impress (the "Star" prefix has been dropped with
OpenOffice / StarOffice 6.x) is pretty good.  Otherwise, I still prefer
other tools to OO/SO for editing, mail, and spreadsheet.  Give the
damned thing a diet.
