However, the opening poster asked for a Powerpoint "designer". That
tells me that "CFOs" are not going to be making these presentations.
Actually, how many CFOs actually create presentations to begin with?
If you already have a web designer on staff (and who doesn't!?), s5 is
easily a drop-in replacement for Powerpoint, especially when matching
the corporate web site, etc.
Context, people! I never said that s5 would be a replacement for most
people (for those people, I'd just say something like Keynote [again,
look at the web page])... just for people who are "designers" and would
want to make something that doesn't look as mediocre as Powerpoint
presentations generally look.
