Is there a good Powerpoint-like program for Windows? Powerpoint is okay but I'd like to know if there's something better.

"Better" is a matter of perception. It also depends on what your requirements are. –  Mike Chess Jul 16 '10 at 23:29

Can you list what problem(s) you have with Powerpoint. You never know there may be a setting or option you've missed that would solve your issue(s). –  ChrisF Jul 17 '10 at 15:19

I use OpenOffice.org and Google Docs. What I usually do is use Google Docs to collaborate and create the PDF, but not apply any styles or themes. Then, I download the presentation, open it in OpenOffice.org (or Microsoft PowerPoint, if it's available) and add styles. –  Thomas Owens Jul 16 '10 at 22:14

Usually I use LaTeX Beamer. In my opinion this is the most powerful presentation software at the moment. :-)

To whoever voted this down: please comment when downvoting to provide constructive feedback. This looks like a fine option to me - perhaps not as friendly in terms of a GUI, but valid presentation software. –  nhinkle Jul 17 '10 at 17:50
    
I was kind of flabbergasted when I saw it voted down. However I was Beamer for several years now and the response was eveytime very positive. –  qbi Jul 17 '10 at 21:13
