I think it should be obvious that a presentation is not limited to the slides you show, but that is a complete performance that involves the visual support, the audio, and also the whole the context of the event. A ‘gesamtkunstwerk’, if you will. In many situations, which software you are using to project images on the screen is inconsequential -a presentation on the effectiveness of aspirin for heart disease prevention is probably equally effective on a Mac or on Windows XP- but in others, is a very important part.
If you are talking about how tool is for making slides, for example, then the tool used for making your slides is definitely part of the presentation and you should think about it. Not only that, but the audience would be justified in doubting the merits of a software that even it’s proponents don’t use for what is supposedly good for.
Of course, there’s no reason for the Ubuntu team to use Ubuntu for graphic design if it’s not up to the job, but they should then not promote it for designers.
