Sure. Had a couple of hours to think about this and suggest that Libre Office Impress could be best to start with. A set of slides that can be used as illustrations of a live voice presentation to Richard's University computer group, with manual advance through a mouse click. Same slides used with built in voice over - can be redone in what ever language you wish, and could be placed on to a DVD for viewing by anyone. Another thing for contemplation - should there be multilingual slide sets?

My raison d'ĂȘtre for using MX is its incredible versatility--it just works. On everything I've ever thrown it on. Never met a wifi chipset it wasn't able to detect--in the background--and connect with my ancient Belkin router OOTB. It's easy to update, especially with apt-get. You can add other debian-based repositories to it (such as Sparky's). And the modified Xfce interface is easy to get used to, doesn't get in the way, and doesn't seem to bog down the limited system resources of even the most decrepit Atom n270 netbooks--even with just 1 GB of RAM. It also works great on my 12 GB i5 notebook.
How do you convey that using slides? Methinks a more practical hands-on demo with a few cheap used eBay derived netbooks would be more convincing, perhaps with a sise by side comparison with one running Win7 Starter. Just my opinion of course.
