Microsoft Power Point

Microsoft has given its office package a charm in presenting one's projects, papers, presentations, resume etc in a very beautiful format in the name of MS Power Point. It is a closed source presentation program developed by Microsoft. he original version of this program was created by Dennis Austin and Thomas Rudkin of Forethought, Inc. 

PowerPoint changed significantly with PowerPoint 97. Prior to PowerPoint 97, presentations were linear, always proceeding from one slide to the next. PowerPoint 97 incorporated the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) language, underlying all macro generation in Office 97, which allowed users to invoke pre-defined transitions and effects in a non-linear movie-like style without having to learn programming.

PowerPoint presentations consist of a number of individual pages or "slides".  Slides may contain text, graphics, movies, and other objects, which may be arranged freely. PowerPoint, however, facilitates the use of a consistent style in a presentation using a template or "Slide Master".

PowerPoint provides three types of movements:
  1. Entrance, emphasis, and exit of elements on a slide itself are controlled by what PowerPoint calls Custom Animations
  2. Transitions, on the other hand are movements between slides. These can be animated in a variety of ways
  3. Custom animation can be used to create small story boards by animating pictures to enter, exit or move

The office 2010 has many advanced features that look better with windows 7 but its requirements for operating system are windows xp service pack 3 and above.
