Let there be discussion!
Me and a uni friend were thinking about writing a PowerPoint clone
for Gnome. Do you think this is a good idea?
Now, don't listen to everyone else; listen to your editor--he knows
Criawips is the way of the future. Sven and I just talked about it a
week and a half ago. Criawips is back into production, and you can get
into it while it's very early. It's biggest advantage is that it will
use AbiWord as a codebase. This places it far above everything else
floating around, because AbiWord was designed by clue-laden people that
knew what it would take to handle multiple formats (like rtf or...pp),
with multiple layouts (html page or...outline), on multiple platforms
Not only would you be working with a code-base that has experience, but
you'll also be working with a coder who has already tried building
another slideshow application...and knows why that one failed.
This is a great chance to get in on the project while it is still (but
not eternally) young (released 0.0.2 last month).
