top products like Word
Hmm. Have you ever used word to do really complex things ? I've been forced to do so in the past. It's a nightmare compared to real tools suited for complex tasks such as Frame (aka Framemaker). I've also used quite a few others. But word for really complex stuff: absolutely the worst tool ever.
The worst aspect is the total lack of respect for styles that word has: one paste that's not "paste as text" and you risk to have to clean up all the style definitions you carefully made. Incomprehensible how one can call that "top".
Powerpoint: I've used it a lot, and I've also used keynote a lot. If I know I'll not have to share the source, I prefer keynote by a long shot. For starters if you do many slides it's much faster (powerpoint gets really sluggish if you have 300+ slides heavy on graphics in one file) - yes that's more than you show in a day, but when reworking training courses for destined for a week worth of training, you end up juggling around a lot of slides.
